The final phase of a four-year project to catalog and preserve 36,000 American pamphlets, including speeches, political tracts, annual reports, biographical sketches, catalogs, and sermons dating from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The New-York Historical Society (N-YHS) seeks funding for the second half of a four-year project to catalog and conserve a collection of approximately 36,000 American pamphlets published during the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries. The N-YHS library pamphlet collection, which includes political tracts, annual reports, biographical sketches, catalogs, sermons, and scientific works, illuminates the cultural, economic, political, religious, social, and scientific history of the United States. It contains more than 9,000 items cataloged nowhere else, and is the last sizeable printed collection at the N-YHS that is unknown and inaccessible to researchers. This second phase of the project will build upon records found in the WorldCat union catalog, and it will create original cataloging records for items cataloged nowhere else, resulting in the cataloging of 18,000 items, the remaining half of the collection. It will also conserve approximately 9,000 items.
