The Center for Archival Collections has a nice guide on how to cite these valuable resources.

Manuscript Collections

An archives or manuscript collection is "an accumulation of original records assembled in the course of the activities of a person or persons, or of a public or private organization; or such records from a number of different sources; and kept together to ensure their preservation and to promote their use." Harrod's Librarians' Glossary and Reference Book, 9th ed.

The BPCL currently has one main Popular Entertainment manuscript collection - the Anthony Slide Collection.

How do I look at these?

Take a look at the Basics of Using the BPCL to find out what our hours are and what kind ID you need.  Also, many of our collections are housed off-site, so plan ahead if you want to use any of these materials.
