Historical Note

Whereas most Harvard College Library records are grouped by creator or owner (such as librarians or other staff members) or by Library department, this collection belongs to a group called Library routine records. This group generally includes ongoing series of records pertaining to day-to-day operations of the Harvard College Library, such as job applications, charging records, shelf lists, and bills. As these records presumably contain bills for the purchase of books, the history of the Harvard College Library Order Department may be of interest (see Related Materials).

Arrangement

This collection is arranged in chronological groups of correspondence by academic year(s). Within groups, files are arranged alphabetically.

Scope and Content

This collection contains invoices, bills, and other material presumably related to the purchase of books in the Harvard College Library from 1877 through 1971. Material is arranged chronologically in groups, and alphabetically thereunder.
