Manuscript collections are collections of paper records, photographic material, physical artifacts, and other items used to document the history of a specific individual, group, or organization. These materials are generally created or gathered by the individuals, groups, or organizations over the course of their life time and can include items such as correspondence, financial and legal documentation, business records, family histories, scrapbooks, and newspaper clippings.
Not entirely sure how best to describe what manuscript collections are, definitely need to re-write this section. Unsure if there should be a section about TARO/ArchivesSpace and using them to continue a search? I think it might be helpful. I'm getting a little confused about what we want to put in the Accessing Our Materials and what we want to put in the sections and subsections. Maybe I need to do an outline. Is the description above from the subject guide? No, it's from me. And I'm also a little unsure on the Accessing Our Materials section - I was thinking that we would use it for the basic "here's our reading room, our policies, and Aeon" explanation. I don't really want to go into a lot of detail on format descriptions or access, just the general information. Then each of the format sections can have more detailed info, like the AV stations info I put in that section. Does that clear it up for you?
TEXAS FOLKLIFE RESOURCES COLLECTION, 1940–1988. (89 tapes and logs)
Production materials for TFR documentary radio series, including its 1987 project, "Lift Every Voice: 50 Years of Central Texas Black Gospel," featuring both oral history and music. Found two collections on TARO that sound similar but don't exactly match this listing. Not sure if they were combined into this entry or if there is another collection out there.
Also unsure as to how/where the American Spirituals listed in the guide, since it links to a project page. Maybe put it in a separate box?
