Brown receives Hidden Collections recognition

Posted 1/2/12

PROVIDENCE – The Council on Library and Information Resources announced last month that Brown University Library is a recipient of the Mellon Foundation’s 2011 Hidden Collections award for “The Gordon Hall and Grace Hoag Collection of Dissenting and Extremist Printed Propaganda, Part II.”

This three-year project was headed by Jennifer Betts, university archivist, and Andrew Ashton, director of digital technologies. It will complete the processing of materials Gordon Hall began compiling when he returned from World War II and encountered U.S. domestic hate groups at both ends of the political spectrum.

Created in 2008 and supported by ongoing funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives awards program supports the identification and cataloging of special collections and archives of high scholarly value that are difficult or impossible to locate. •
