A Finding Guide to the British Studies Collections in the Media Library at the University of Colorado at Boulder Libraries

2004

Center for British Studies
University of Colorado at Boulder

Introduction


The Finding Guide for British Studies materials in the Media Library is arranged in two parts, depending upon the format of the collection. The first lists materials in microform format: microfilm, microfiche, and microcard. These entries are arranged alphabetically by title of the set. The main title under which a collection is entered is a working title, chosen to provide ready access for users. If the collection was sold commercially under a different title, or if it appears in the University of Colorado catalogues under another title, the other names are given beneath the main entry, in parentheses. In most cases the Guide names the archives in which the original manuscripts or printed works are located.

The second part of the Media Finding Guide summarizes materials in other visual and audio formats. It is laid out by type of format, with a brief indication of the range of items about or by the various topics or individuals. (The number in parentheses after a person's name indicates how many items in that format are included in the collection, to give some sense of the depth of the holdings.) A detailed listing of the non-microform materials, with call numbers, is available at the Media Library desk.

Some of the British Studies materials in the Media Finding Guide are kept in off-site storage. Users are strongly encouraged to contact the Media Library at least one week in advance of their planned visit to check whether the sets they wish to use are immediately available or must be called back from storage through a special order.

The initial version of the Media Library Finding Guide was prepared in 1991-2 by Dr. Vincent Patarino, then a graduate student at the University of Colorado, with assistance from Dr. Nancy Nolte and Professor Marjorie McIntosh. This guide was updated in 2005 by Thea Lindquist, History bibilographer and Sharon Stillman-Curtis.
