How Does the Wade Center get New Materials for their Collections?

Page 1

The collections at the Wade Center contain materials by and about our seven authors, and our holdings continue to grow. This exhibit shows the process of how the Wade Center acquires new materials, preserves them, and makes them available for patrons to use.

The four steps from Purchase to Perusal are: 1) Receiving New Materials, 2) Documentation, 3) Storage & Preservation, and 4) Ready to Use!
