Annual acquisitions lists provide brief descriptions of materials
received by the division. They include information on the source
and extent of each receipt; whether it is a new collection or an
addition to an existing one; and whether the material is original
or a reproduction (generally microform) of materials held elsewhere.
Featured acquisitions: During the calendar year
2005 the Manuscript Division received the papers of the following
individuals: Samuel Dash, Charles and Ray Eames, Philip Geyelin,
Katharine Graham, Meg Greenfield, Henry Grunwald, and Bernard Schriever.
Significant additions to the following collections were received:
Robert Bork, Edward Brooke, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Patsy Mink, Daniel
Patrick Moynihan, and Sandra Day O'Connor.
Announcements of significant acquisitions often appear in the Library
of Congress Information Bulletin or in press
releases. Brief descriptions of collections are entered
in the Library of Congress online
catalog upon receipt and updated after archival processing
has been completed.
Earlier acquisitions reports
The Manuscript Division has prepared acquisitions reports since
its earliest days. From 1943 to 1978 the division published acquisitions
lists and articles in the Quarterly Journal of the Library
of Congress (formerly titled Quarterly Journal of Current
Acquisitions). From 1979 to 1995 similar lists and essays were
published in Library of Congress Acquisitions: Manuscripts.
