The Archives Committee of the American Trust for the British Library and the Grolier Club Library are pleased to announce the completion of the processing of the records of the American Trust for the British Library. The archive consists of 6 boxes of materials (6 linear feet) of the business records of the ATBL, and includes financial and legal records, correspondence, grants and foundations information, publications, photographs, event invitations, and other materials generated by the ATBL between 1979 and 2017. These materials provide a context for and understanding of the transatlantic relationship between the ATBL and the British Library. The Grolier Club Library is the official repository for the ATBL records and will continue to accrue, process, and make incoming materials available for researchers.
The finding aid for the records is available through the Grolier Club’s online catalog (http://grolier.vtls.com:3272/heading/search?theme=grolier), and a complete folder list is available upon request. For more information about using the Grolier Club Library, please visit the website at www.grolierclub.org/ or contact the Librarian, Meghan Constantinou, at firstname.lastname@example.org / 212.838.6690
This project was completed in the summer of 2018 by Miwa Yokoyama, ATBL’s Archival Consultant. An oral history component to the archive is currently in production and will be available on the ATBL website, through the Grolier Club Library and the British Library Archive.
