8 Grant Overview: To assist in the formative stages of collaborative initiatives for preserving and improving access to humanities collections, the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida (UF), in partnership with the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), institutional members of the Collaborative Initiative for French Language Collections (CIFNAL), the Newberry, the National Library of France (BNF), a nd a team of noted scholars of French literature and history, request $39,246 (with $33,997 in contributed cost share from UF) to support assessment, planning, and project activities that will leverage expertise from a mix of professional domains. Drawing upon the cooperation of humanities scholars and technical specialists, revolutionary pamphlet collections; 2) collaborative engagement and planning to improve intellectual control of extant French pamphlet collections in the U.S. and France; 3) systematic identification and organization of collaborative frameworks and corresponding data sources, item descriptions and online collection content; and 4) planning of preliminary versions of future online collections and resources to improve overall discoverability of all pamphlet collections regardless of location. At the time of proposal submission, confirmed project partners and participants include: Ball State University (BSU), Brigham Young University (BYU), Brown University, Cornell University, Emory University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Stanford University, University of Alabama (UA), University of Kansas (UK), University of M ichigan (UM), and Yale University. Although not formally included in the project budget, it is estimated additional cost share of at least $30,000 will be contributed through efforts of ons experts, and scholars.

10 What Is a Pamphlet? The pamphlet, as a mode of expression, had in its brevity and portability the power to reach beyond the march towards better dissemination of critical t hinking in France began in 1748, when French philosopher and writer Denis Diderot launched the idea of creating a universal encyclopedia to promote popular access to knowledge. Yet it was the less expensive pamphlet which truly put these new ideas into cir culation. Anonymous pamphlet writers took up the pen and shared their political concerns with a government systems, and referring to these texts as: "Philosop hical Literature." Known today by historians under the name "revolutionary pamphlets" or "revolutionary libels," such writings attacked religion, the state, and existing social and moral norms. These libels usually constituted only a few pages to several h undred and by attacking the King, the nobility, and the clergy, they challenged a social order deemed unjust and unfair. In this way, French pamphleteers opened a Pandora's Box in one of the most n eradicate existing feudal traditions and overturn an entire society. Why Pamphlets: As primary documents, pamphlet literature offers researchers rare and unique evidence of events occurring within the politics, history and mores of one of the most important and singular political events of Western civilization: the French Revolution of th e 18th century. These coverless printings, predating newspapers, could be easily concealed, posted and distributed in ways other official communications could not. On June 17, 1789, the members of the Third Estate unanimously refused to join the nobility a nd clergy in sessions at the French General Assembly. However, it was a pamphlet definitively triggered historical uprisings. In this short essay, Emman uel Sieys inspired a political incident marking the beginning of the French Revolution and rise of the Third Estate and demonstrated the power of a single document.
12 Planning A ctivities The following paragraphs describe major project planning activit ies to reveal and plan for emerging period: 1)survey institutional partners; 2)facilitate planning session #1 with collection managers and content ex perts; 3) complete an environmental scan to collect data about current situations and collections for each partner; 4) facilitate planning session #2, using Go To Meeting or another online conference tool, with collection managers, catalog experts and digi tal content managers; 5) facilitate online planning session #3 to finalize timeline; and 6) finalize and share final documentation of planning decisions and timeline. Project planning members have been assigned to these categories: facilitators (UF and C RL); FPP working group/US partners (Emory, JHU, Stanford, UA, UF, UK, UM, and Yale committed to planning and completing environmental scans);US planning participants (Brown, BSU, BYU, Cornell, and Harvard); future participants (Berkeley, etc.); French part ner (BNF) and scholarly advisors: Audrey Viguier, Ph.D.,University of Texas, Brownsville, French pamphlet scholar and scholarly advisors representative; Phillipe Gardy, Centre Nacional de Recherche Scientifique (CNRS),Universit Paul Valry, Montpellier; Henri Boyer, Universit Montpellier III; and Chantal Thomas, CNRS. Surveys from institutional partners: content knowledge, access needs of scholars, in frastructure availability for assessing cataloging, digitizing, preservation, planning for collaborative portal, and recommended criteria for prioritizing collections, for pamphlet content and criteria for setting planning priorities regarding research access. [Continued on opposite page.]
13 Planning Session #1 (Chicago) CRL, and attended by content managers/librarians representing US partners and participants(eight US institutions),two librarians from BNF; and Dr. Viguier. Goals for this session w ill be to: 1 ) introduce planning process; 2) outline participant responsibilities and establish concrete processes and workflows for student assistant tasks and for developing environmental scans; and 3) address common concerns or questions. Session partic ipants also will conduct a site visit to the Newberry to learn about results from d Table events, in which a variety of stakeholders meet to examine the current and emerging challenges of collecting primary source material in a given subject area, and to build an action agenda for collaborative responses to these challenges. Previous Ro news, global water resources, and human rights documentation. [End of Planning Activities.]
14 Summer Environmental Scan: Environmental scan and data collection: Each partner (Emory, JHU Stanford, UA, UF, UK, UM, and Yale) will employ student assistants ($16,058 NEH request), under the supervision and guidance of content experts, to assess pamphlet collections thus compiling information necessary for future planning sessions (see Appendix G). Viguier will assist with BNF collection analysis and contribute report for inclusion in environmental scan ($1,074 airfare for site visit, NEH request). Areas to be assessed include: Sc ope (number of items, number of pages per pamphlet, size, inclusive dates); Physical arrangement (location and environment, storage and retrieval methods/ requirements by scholars and availability on site or remotely); Condition (manner of binding/storage media, fragility, completeness/integrity); Bibliographic accessibility (level of intellectual access, existing finding aids, descriptions, available catalog records or metadata, series entry, etc.); Digital availability (technical specifications, metadata format, retrieval methods, etc.) or digitization plans ; and, Scholarly advisors and partners will provide use cases (examples of recent or previous scholarly work), perceived needs and barriers to collection access. For major pamphlet collection partners (BNF and the Newberry): The BNF will provide an inventory of digital objects scanned from microfilmed collections which represent total pamphlet holdings. The Newberry will provide an inventory of cataloged pamphlet titles (22,000) and those remaining to be [End of Summer Environmental Scan.]
15 Newberry CLIR Award: French Pamphlet Collections at the Newberry Library is a three year project funded by a Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives grant. CLIR administers this national effort with the support of generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. French Pamphlet Collections at the Newberry Library began in January 2010 and will be completed in January 2013. Through the project, the Newberry is creating full, item level MARC records for 22,000 French pamphlets that date from the 16th to the 19th century. CIFNAL: The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) offers excellent resources in literature, history, and cultural studies from a number of Francophone countries. The goals of the Global Resources Network (GRN) focus on facilitating and enriching access to international collectio ns. By joining the Global Resources Network of the Center for Research Libraries, CIFNAL engages in a collaborative partnership that promises to make a wider range of information resources and to support and strengthen scholarship in Francophone studies. Following its participation in the Conference of the Association Internationale Francophone des Bibliothcaires et Documentalistes (AIFBD) in August 2008, CIFNAL began to develop collaborative relationships with Francophone partners outside of North Ameri ca. UFDC: The University of Florida Digital Collections (UFDC) hosts more than 300 outstanding digital collections, containing over 8 million pages of unique manuscripts and letters, antique maps, rare children's literature books, theses and dissertations, newspapers, historic photo graphs, oral histories, and more. The University of Florida Digital Collections (UFDC) enables users to find unique and rare digitized materials held at the University of Florida and partner institutions. With UFDC, remote and local researchers have free, Open Access to the full content of the resource. This is a constantly growing collection of resources.

16 Survey Questions and Responses: 1. Please describe the scope of your institution's pamphlet holdings; o For instance: if available, please provide the total number of items, number of pages per pamphlet, size of the pamphlets, inclusive d ates, etc. o For instance: when less information is known, please describe what is known to inform the overall scope estimate. o If your institution holds additional French Pamphlets from outside of this project's particular date range (1789 1799), please provide information on the additional holdings and years. Ball State University All 544 of our pamphlets are within this range. Our collection is 1789 1792. Berkeley University The Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley, identifies more t han 11,000 pamphlets within this date range. Our holdings, however, include pamphlets from 1788 to 1800. I have not attempted to refine the number to 1789 1800/ Brigham Young University BYU does have holdings of some revolutionary era pamphlets, 1789 1799 but they represent a minor collection, numbering between 40 50 titles (none of them digitized). BYU holds around 2200 titles from 1547 1626, classed as pamphlets from the era of the wars of religion. Most of these are digitized. Sizes and pagination coun ts vary. BYU holds approximately 670 pamphlets not listed in Lindsay & Neu, the major bibliography of French Political Pamphlets for this period. BYU also holds around 1300 Mazarinade pamphlets (1648 1653), none of them digitized as of yet. Thus, counting all three collections, the total holdings at BYU number approximately 3600 print pamphlets.

19 University of Maryland The French Pamphlet Collection contains approximately 12,000 pieces dating from 1620 to 1966, covering many key episodes in the history of France. The largest part of the collection is made up of 7000 pamphle ts from the Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras, 1788 1815. These include government publications from the first ten years of the French Revolution, 1790 1799; over 1700 decrees and laws published from 1789 to 1795; and sixty four Revolutionary journals in a series by Jacques Rene Hebert of Pre Duchesne fame. In addition to the Revolutionary era, major strengths in the collection include pamphlets produced during the Fronde (1649 1652), as well as 19th century French plays. Oversize posters and broadsides fro m the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries can be found in the collection as well. Some of these materials also chronicle France's involvement with the Middle East, centering on the conflict with the Ottoman Empire, 1900 1924. There appear to be some discrepanci es in how pamphlets were counted and additional work is required to ascertain the exact number of pamphlets in our holding. Additionally, currently works has revealed significant duplication within our holdings.

20 Stanford University We've done more surveying and have closer to 1200 pamphlets in print from 1780 1810. Pagination is in most of the records, and we used page count (8 50 pages) and date to define the items included in the total count. Most are 8o sized. Most have individual records, but there are significant numbers of pamphlets that are bound together (like "98 pamphlets in 2 v." with a binder's title "Salmigondis revolutionnaire") Stanford Univ. Librari es has other French pamphlet collections including on early modern social welfare and poverty (16th 19th century), approx. 80 pamphlets from the Wars of Religion (16th c), collections of arrets, lois, edicts and other political tracts etc.(mainly 18th ce ntury, but earlier as well), and [sic] Yale University Manuscripts and Archives, Yale University Library. Summary: Printed censorship decrees (1626 1789, inclusive) issued by the Parlement of Paris, provincial Parlements, the Conseil d'Etat du Roi, bishops and archbishops in France, Pope Clemens XI, and others make up the largest part of the French government documents and political pamphlets. Most of the works banned are ecclesiastical. A small amount of political literature and government decrees from the period of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic era are also included. Scope estimate for overall col lection: 2 linear feet (5 boxes) arranged in two series: Series I.

22 2. Please describe the physical arrangement and condition of your institution's pamphlets (location and environment, storage and retrieval methods/ requirements by scholars and availability on site or remotely); Ball State University The pamphlets are housed in Archives and Special Collections in acid free folders and boxes. The unit has a temperature and humidity controlled environment, as well as an electronic security system. Researchers request materials for use in the Archives reading room. Materials do not circulate, but photocopies can be made in the Archives. Digital copies may be provided by Archives staff. The pamphlets have been digitized, however, and are available for viewing and download on the Web in our Digital Media Repository ( http://libx.bsu.edu ). Berkeley University Most of the pamphlets are housed in individual acid free sleeves in acid free pamphlet boxes. They are kept in temperature and humidity controlled environment maintained at 68 degrees Fahrenheit/50% relative humidly Most are stored remotely in the University's offsite storage facility. Items may only be used in the supervised reading room of The Bancroft Library and must be paged. Those i n remote storage require three days' advance notice for retrieval. Those on site can normally be retrieved in less than an hour. Brigham Young University The pamphlets are stored in an onsite, secured underground Special Collections area controlled for temperature and humidity, with flood and fire diversion and prevention protocols in place. Intellec tual access and retrieval are by catalog records and subsequent retrieval for research and consultation in an onsite reading room. Requirements for a user include statement of the research interest, completion of Reading Privilege Request Forms, and an ons ite interview with a Special Collection curator. One exception is open access to the online digital copies of the 1547 1626 pamphlets via a dedicated Digital Collections page.
23 Brown University The Military ordonnances are kept in a special collections r oom in the Main Library until the Fall 2014. They can be consulted in a reading room. They will be brought back to the Special Collections Library in the Fall of 2014. The Metcalf Collection is housed in special collections at the John Hay Library; pamphle ts are bound together by subject. Under normal circumstances, these can be requested and consulted at the John Hay Library. However, the John Hay is now closed for a large scale renovation project and will reopen in Sept. 2014. The Kirk Collection is house d in a storage facility and the French pamphlets may be requested and consulted either at the storage facility reading room or on campus at the Rockefeller Library. As part of the renovation of the Special Collections Library, climate and humidity controls will be upgraded. Emory University The collection is housed together in the Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library (MARBL). They are housed on site and can be used by anyone. University of Florida The collection is housed in the Special Collections o f the George A. Smathers Libraries. The majority of these documents are accessible through the UF Special Collections reading room with set hours and rules. One hundred and twenty of the titles are available online through the UF French Research Collecti ons. Johns Hopkins University They are located in several locations: in our rare book stacks in the main library; in our off site facility (protected); in another special collections library downtown (and within this library, they are in both the stacks a nd the rare book room). The only access is from the online catalog. Although I am working on an inventory. Environment is very good in the rare book stacks and off site facility. The environment in the library downtown is less ideal, as it is a C19 buildin g. Scholars can request anything here or off site at the Special Collections desk, and use it in the reading room. Material from the library downtown generally needs to be requested and used there, although we do occasionally bring materials up here, espec ially for classes. Some material can be requested online, if you an affiliate (have a login and PW). For the public, it needs to be done in person. Much is not requestable online.
24 Kansas University LOCATION All of the French pamphlets are housed in secure Special Collections stacks areas (accessible only to library staff) or secure staff work areas within Spencer Research Library. They do not circulate outside the building. Summary: All (100%) of the approximately 10,500 French pamphlets are housed in secu re areas in the Spencer Research Library building. ENVIRONMENT The air handling system controls temperature and humidity throughout Spencer Research Library. Readings from sensors positioned at selected locations in the building are monitored by KU conserv ation staff. Summary: All (100%) of the French pamphlets are housed in a temperature and humidity controlled environment suitable for books. ORGANIZATION The pamphlets are divided among various named collections. Melvin Collection: The bulk of the French pamphlets are in the Melvin Collection. The Melvin Collection is shelved together but is divided into adjacent French, Belgian, and Geneva sections. The numbered Melvin French pamphlets (through 6874) are shelved in numerical order. Most are individually h oused in envelopes and grouped in pamphlet boxes, while a small number are bound in volumes. The remaining un numbered Melvin French pamphlets, some of the Melvin Belgian pamphlets, and almost all the Melvin Geneva pamphlets are housed in old pamphlet boxe s (without individual envelopes). Call numbers for the numbered pamphlets consist of the collection name followed by sequential numbers. Approximately 470 Mazarinades appear in the KU online catalog. They belong to the Summerfield Collection of pre 1701 Co ntinental European books. Their call numbers are not necessarily sequential (because they are a small part of the Summerfield Collection and may have been acquired and cataloged at different times), so they are not necessarily grouped together on the books helves. In addition, approximately 130 uncataloged Mazarinades are stored in an area for unprocessed printed books; they are not shelved in any particular order. The rest of the French pamphlet holdings are divided among the general Rare Books Collection, catalog. The call numbers include the name of the collection, a capital letter (indicating height range), and an item number. The pamphlets form a small part of these collecti ons and may have been acquired and cataloged at different times, so they are not necessarily shelved together. Summary: Approximately 70% of the pamphlets (the 6874 numbered Melvin French pamphlets and the 460 cataloged Melvin Belgian pamphlets) are shelve d together in call number order. Approximately 5% (the 470 cataloged Mazarinades in the Summerfield Collection and the approximately 100 cataloged pamphlets in the in larger collections in call number order. Approximately 25% are uncataloged pamphlets (approximately 2126 Melvin French, 80 Melvin Belgian, 250 Melvin Geneva, and 130 Mazarinades), shelved together by
25 collection but not in any particular order. RETRIEVAL The circulation of all material held in Spencer Research Library, cataloged or not, is managed by Aeon software. When one of the approximately 1290 French pamphlets listed in the KU Voyager online Catalog has been identified, the patron clicks on the anywhere the patron has Internet access to the KU online catalog, but the items are normally not paged until after the patron arrives at Spencer Research Lib rary and asks for them. The call slips are then printed out and paged to the reading room, usually by a student assistant, within 10 15 minutes. Aeon is also used to request cataloged material not yet in the KU online catalog. After a pamphlet is identifie d, a blank Aeon request form is accessed by means of a link at the library home page, filled in, and submitted online. As with automated Aeon requests, such manual Aeon requests are not paged until the patron arrives at the reading room and asks for them. A request to consult uncataloged French pamphlets requires curator mediation and approval. The curator creates an Aeon request for a group of uncataloged pamphlets and arranges for them to be paged. In the reading room the patron can browse the uncataloge d pamphlets, which include approximately 130 Mazarinades, 2126 Melvin French pamphlets, 80 Melvin Belgian pamphlets, and 250 Melvin Geneva pamphlets. Summary: Approximately alog and placing an automated Aeon request. Approximately 6614 (63%) additional KU French pamphlets can be retrieved by searching the Melvin Collection paper catalog and placing a manual Aeon request. Approximately assistance. University of Maryland The bulk of the pamphlets are numbered and in boxes and can be located through a guide. The guide identifies approximately 6000 pamphlets only by broad subject. Approximately 2000 pamphlets are listed by author and give the title (sometimes abbreviated) wi th place of publication, publisher, and date. All are located in Hornbake Library which provides a state of the art environment with a supervised reading room and patron access to state of the art scanning equipment.
26 Newberry Library Condition of mate rial is generally very good. All materials are on site and do not leave the building. Stacks are closed and climate controlled. The Newberry Library is an independent research library that is free and open to the public. Readers 16 years of age or older ma y use the pamphlets on site. Both on site and remote users can request digital images of the pamphlets. The major pamphlet collections are shelved together under a single call numbers or in a sequential numbering system. Some titles, a small portion, were collection Stanford University All materials are in Libraries' Special Collections. They are cataloged either individually or by unanalyzed volume in SearchWorks, t he OPAC. They must be paged from remove storage and are available in the Spec Collections reading room in the main library 24 hours after the request has been made. No remote access is possible. Yale University nts and Political Pamphlets 1626 held by the Manuscripts and Archives at the Sterling Memorial Library (MSSA) located at the 128 Wall Street, New Haven, CT 06520. MSSA is a major center for historical inquiry and also serves as the docu mentary memory of Yale University. The repository holds 64,000 linear feet of material in total. Half of the holdings is composed of more than 1900 collections of personal and family papers and organizational records that document a variety of subject and geographical areas. The Yale University Archives comprise the other half. The French Pamphlets are shelved at the Manuscripts and Archives Shelving Facility (LSF MSSA) which is in Hamden, Connecticut, about four miles from campus (at 147 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden, CT 06518). The shelving facility is not open to the public. To request materials from the LSF MSSA, users need to use the "Place Requests" feature in the MSSA online tool. The requested material is delivered to the onsite consultation in the MSSA and it is retrieved the same day or the next business day. Anyone wishing to use collection materials at MSSA must register annually. Registration is for the current academic year and expires on June 30th. By registering, the patron is applying for permiss ion to examine collection materials and agrees to abide by the Terms Governing the Use of Departmental Holdings and Reading Room Procedures. Users can pre register online at http://aeon mssa.library.yale.edu. Pamphlets at Beinecke: Pamphlets are held and s helved either at the
27 Beinecke Library (located at 121 Wall street, New Haven CT06511) or at the Beinecke Shelving Facility (LSF Beinecke), which is in Hamden, Connecticut, about four miles from campus (at 147 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden, CT 06518). The Beine cke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is one of the world's largest libraries devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts and is Yale's principal repository for literary archives, early manuscripts, and rare books. The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Libra ry is open to all Yale University students and faculty, and visiting researchers whose work requires use of its special collections. Beinecke is a non circulating, closed stack library. Materials may be requested using request links in ORBIS, the Yale Find ing Aid Database, as well as the Beinecke Digital Collections tool. Material that is stored within the main Beinecke building will be paged and it typically takes twenty minutes to retrieve materials from the stacks. Some Beinecke material is stored off si te and must be requested two days in advance. Permission is required for access to some materials. Users are required to consult the Closed Collections Schedule for a list of archives closed for processing. Many Beinecke Library collection materials may be digitally photographed by readers in the reading room for study purposes with a small handheld camera, cell phone or iPad. SLR's, large cameras and tripods are not allowed. Researchers will need to complete and sign the "Policy on Digital Photography be R eaders in the Reading Room" as a part of the registration process. It is also possible to order reproductions. Pamphlets on microform in Microform Reading Room: Pamphlets on microfilm are shelved in the main Microform Reading Room of the Yale University Li brary located in the Sterling Memorial Library (130 Wall Street, New Haven, CT 06520). The reading room contains one of the largest collections of its kind and is an especially rich source of newspapers and other primary source material. All holders of Yal e ID cards may use the Microform Reading Room. Visiting Researchers can also use the collection but must register first with the Privileges Office. Researchers should note that some of the microforms are held in the Library Shelving Facility (LSF), and sam e day access cannot be guaranteed. Holders of Yale ID cards may make advance requests for LSF materials through Orbis via the "Place Requests" feature. The items arrive usually in one or two days and requestors can pick up the item at the circulation desk in Sterling Memorial Library and take it to the microform room. The requested material is for the onsite consultation only. The Microform Reading Room offers equipment that allows users to read materials in microfilm, microfiche, and microprint formats. Pa trons have an option to create digital copies of film at no charge or create printed paper copies at a rate of 20 cents per page. Some machines have Internet access and the entire room offers access to the Yale wireless network.

29 3. Please describe the condition of your pamphlet collections (manner of binding/storage media, fragility, and completeness/integrity); Ball State University Nearly all of the pamphlets are in excellent or good condition, and are complete. Berkeley Univers ity Most of the pamphlets are treated individually (many having been disbound from bound collections). They are individually sleeved in acid free paper, which in turn is kept in acid free pamphlet boxes in call number order. Brigham Young University The p amphlets are organized in acid free folders within acid free boxes onsite. The great majority of pamphlets are in good shape and complete. A few pamphlets have been given a hard binding cover. Brown University The Military ordonnances collections and Metc alf pamphlets are housed in an environmentally controlled facility. The are in very good condition. The Kirk Collection pamphlets are fragile and brittle. Emory University Unfortunately when the collection was acquired in the late 1940s most of the pamphlets were bound together at the library bindery making them hard to copy or digitize. Around 900 are unbound.
30 University of Florida The pamphlets are stored in 33 archival boxes in a climate and humidity controlled storage facility. The indi vidual pamphlets are stored in an individual acid free folder and on average there are about 85 titles per box. The pamphlets were originally bound in volumes, they were removed at some point and stored individually in acid free envelopes causing some cre asing. There are many different types and qualities of paper and printing ink used, which can lead to bleed through of text. This will have an impact of any scanning. There are many discernible watermarks in the various pamphlets which should be documen ted for bibliographical research. In addition, many have printers devices. Some pamphlets remain uncut or have unopened pages which would need to be opened before scanning. The majority of the pamphlets are untrimmed which can also affect the speed of s canning. The pamphlets sometimes have fold out materials such as tables that may require extra time in any eventual scanning project. Johns Hopkins University withs in volumes. I have seen a few tightly bound volumes that could be difficult to work with. Kansas University MANNER OF BINDING/STORAGE MEDIA Most of the Melvin Collection (approximately 9,800 pamphlets altogether) consists of individual pamphlets, either folded in gatherings (often sewn and occasionally in paper wrappers) or formerly bound together in volumes but now disbound. Also, some Melvin Collection pamphlets are in individual bindings, while others are bound together in assorted volumes. The include a similar assortment of binding types. Summary: The variety of binding types reflects the acquisition of the pamphlets by collectors and by Spencer Research L ibrary from various sources over a long period of time. FRAGILITY A general preservation survey of the French pamphlet collections has not been done and is needed. It is possible to make some comments about physical condition. The Special Collections corr espondence files of a 1960s 1970s project to microfilm some of the Melvin Collection indicate that some damage resulted from improper handling during filming and inadequate packing for return to Spencer Research Library.
31 According to the correspondence, only the most severely damaged item was repaired. The uncataloged Melvin Collection pamphlets housed without enclosures in pamphlet boxes appear to be in need of and Rare Books Collections were not microfilmed, but they also need a preservation survey. Summary: There should be a general preservation survey of the French pamphlet collections. COMPLETENESS/INTEGRITY The Melvin Collection paper catalog reports few, if any, many missing pages and parts. It seems more likely that the uncataloged Melvin material includes incomplete pamphlets. The departmental correspondence about the 1960s 1970s microfilming project mentions discovery of a few incomplete Melvin Collecti on pamphlets. Only one of the KU online catalog records for Mazarinades notes that pages of text are wanting, although several others note missing blank pages. University of Maryland Some pamphlets are in their original state, some have paper wrappers add ed to them for protection, a few are bound, and most are in very good or excellent condition. Stored in folders or envelopes in boxes. Newberry Library A majority of the Newberry's French pamphlets are unbound and stored loose in portfolios in a climate controlled stacks building. Some pamphlets are bound together, e.g. Saint Sulpice Collection, making digitization challenging. Very few are incomplete. They are generally stable and not fragile. The most common types of damage are minor and include loose gathering or pages and tears. The Newberry's Conservation Services Department repairs and stabilizes damaged and fragile pamphlets as needed. Stanford University Overall complete unless noted in record, stored in controlled conditions off site. Typ ical condition for this type of materials.

33 4. Please describe the supports in place for bibliographic accessibility of your pamphlet collectio ns (level of intellectual access, existing finding aids, descriptions, availability of catalog records or metadata in local catalog and/or WorldCat, series entry, etc.) Ball State University Two finding aid to the collection are available on our Web site: one with the titles in French only (http://www.bsu.edu/libraries/archives/findingaids/SPEC008_French.pdf) and one with the titles translated to English (http://www.bsu.edu/libraries/archives/findingaids/SPEC008_English.pdf). The digital collection has met adata records (Dublin Core) for each item: http://libx.bsu.edu/cdm/landingpage/collection/FrnchRev ). Berkeley University Primary access is through the digital catalog of the Berkeley University Library, OskiCat. The primary collection numbers are DC141.F7: Works of known authorship; also held by BnF (aka found in Martin & Walter) DC141.F71: Works of unknown authorship; also held by BnF DC141.F715: Works not held by BnF DC141.F717: Revolutionary song sheets DC141.F72: Serials (still largely uncataloged) DC141.F723: Legislative documents (ca. 200 individual titles cataloged; many, many more to go ...) Brigham Young University For the 1547 1626 collection there is a dedicated website with digital copies (see 2.5). In addition for the same collection there is a print or PDF bibliography / finding aid with 2286 entires, each with author, title, imprint information followed by pagi nation, an annotation of description and context, Lindsay & Neu citation information and local call number. For all pamphlets the local catalog can help to locate pamphlets mainly by two methods: an alphabetic "citation" search using "Lindsay & Neu. Fren ch Political Pamphlets" an alphabetic genre / form search using "Pamphlets France" and then picking the century In WorldCat, due to inaccessible institutional (local) records, the best that can be done is to use "Pamphlets France" as a subject search whi le limiting to French language and the dates, e.g., 1547 1626. None of these methods retrieve a complete set of the pamphlets, but the bibliography and the online website can be used to complete the picture for at least the Wars of Religion set.
34 Brown Uni versity About 2/3 of the military ordonnances have been cataloged in Worldcat. The remaining titles will be added to Worldcat over the next year. The Metcalf Pamphlets have been cataloged in Worldcat. The Kirk pamphlets have been organized by language/co untry but are not individually listed. Emory University The whole collection was fully cataloged over the last 5 years so there is excellent access through Emory's catalog and holdings were also recorded in OCLC. University of Florida The pamphlet collec tion as well as finding aid produced in 1971 have been cataloged and are accessible both in the catalog and through WorldCat. Titles that were scanned and put online have a minimum of description but are now also available in the catalog through improveme nts and integration between the UFDC and statewide library automation centers. These digital facsimile titles also appear in catalog. The vast majority Special Collections archival holdings. Johns Hopkins University Problematic. Finding these things in our online catalog is difficult. Using LCSH, with date limits, then going throug h the results record by record to find titles that are less than about 100 pages. There is no heading/keyword/series title one can use to find them all.
35 Kansas University BIBLIOGRAPHIC ACCESSIBILITY The approximately 1290 French pamphlets with records in the KU Voyager online catalog (470 Mazarinades in the Summerfield collection; approximately 100 French lvin French pamphlets; and 460 Melvin Belgian pamphlets) can be searched fairly effectively by some combination of author, title, keyword, date, collection name, and call number. Setting date range limits before the search or sorting results by date after History Revolution, 1789 other publications and microforms. While limiting searches to Spencer Resear ch Library holdings is an option, this step also automatically limits possible search types to keyword or Boolean. It the desired pamphlet is known, the individual Spencer Research Library call number can be searched using the search category: Left anchore d call number (not LC). The 6874 numbered pamphlets in the Melvin Collection can be searched in the two volume Saricks catalog, which forms the only finding aid for the bulk of this collection (that is, the 6614 Melvin French pamphlets not in the KU online catalog). The entries in this paper catalog are arranged alphabetically. The first three sections of the catalog list: I. Publications with individual authors, II. Anonymous publications, and III. Corporate publications. Several short supplements listing additional pamphlets are appended. At the end of the catalog, an alphabetical index provides access by subjects, personal names, and geographical names. Approximately 2586 (25%) ical browsing. Summary: Even though 1290 of the French pamphlets (12% of our total holdings) appear in the KU online catalog, they are divided among a number of named collections requiring multiple differing searches and with no certainty that the searche s will find every single French pamphlet in Spencer Research Library. Although its access points are more limited, the Saricks paper catalog is relatively simple and effective and provides the only access to the 6614 Melvin Collection pamphlets (63% of our total holdings) not in the KU online catalog. The remaining 2586 uncataloged French pamphlets (25% of our total holdings) can be searched only by physical browsing.
36 University of Maryland The bulk of the pamphlets are accessible through a guide in w hich approximately 6000 items are not controlled at the title level, but rather by broad subject. Approximately 2000 are more fully controlled in a list arranged by author. An indeterminable number have been cataloged throughout the years and shelved in th eir subject area. Recent practice has been to catalog them under a series number in order to keep them together. Approximately 300 are fully cataloged in this manner. Newberry Library Full, item s are freely available online via the Newberry's local online catalog, the I Share union catalog, and OCLC WorldCat. Cataloging for pamphlets included in our recent CLIR Hidden Collections is richer in description and access for names and subjects than mat erial cataloged earlier on cards Stanford University There are no finding aids describing the entire collection of pamphlets. Catalog description varies from minimal to more complete. All items have some presence in the catalog (usually individual records ), and in WorldCat. Martin & Walter citations are included.

40 Johns Hopkins University None. Kansas University As far as we are aware, none of our French pamphlet collections and titles is available in digital format. So far digitization of Spe ncer Research Library holdings has focused mainly on collections of graphic images, including Sanborn fire insurance maps of Kansas towns, Pennell historic photographs of life in pt drawings. Except for the NEH funded Gould digitization project (which is scheduled for completion in October 2013), these and other digital collections can presently be viewed at the KU Libraries website at: http://www.lib.ku.edu/digitalcollections/ Th e prospect of participation in a multi library collaborative project aiding us to catalog and conserve our French pamphlet collection and digitize selected pamphlets is a different and exciting possibility. University of Maryland 82 pamphlets have been di gitized and are available through the Internet Archive. Digitization continues through the Internet Archive on a monthly basis (approximately 25 50 per month). Metadata is supplied via a z39.50 link to our catalog. We are currently testing digitization wit hout prior cataloging in which case metadata is provided in a spreadsheet. Newberry Library While the Newberry's French pamphlet collections are not digitized, staff made an effort during cataloging to include in the MARC catalog records for the pamphlets stable URLs to digitized versions of the pamphlets when available via a trusted repository, such as the Bibliothque nationale's Gallica digital library. Only a few hundred have these links. Other digitized materials at the Newberry use Dublin Core for me tadata and are available through CONTENTdm, which is made available through our consortium. We have also just started implementing a digital asset management system, which is available internally for staff. As of yet there is no public access for assets in the system. Now that the cataloging is complete, we are beginning to consider the feasibility of digitizing all of our French pamphlets
41 Stanford University Currently no French Revolution pamphlets have been digitized in house, but this survey may provi de the preparatory information to start such a project.

42 6. Please describe any research and/or teaching related to your French pamphlet holdings being done at your institution. Ball State University A French Civilization and Culture class uses the pamphlets each academic year. Honors students volunteers have worked wit the colleciton to help translate the pamphlets (title primarily along with some abstracts). Berkeley University n/a Brigham Young Un iversity Students have used the pamphlets a number of times for papers, reports and, to date, two theses. They are used in teaching, generally in separate sessions with Special Collections itself. Faculty have used the pamphlets to some degree, but, as alw ays, we are hoping and campaigning for greater use of the materials. It is also very likely that the online presence of the 1547 1626 set of pamphlets have led, or will lead, to research beyond our knowledge elsewhere in the scholarly world. Brown Univers ity The Kirk Collection was used recently by a faculty member to teach a class on Alcohol and the Global Nineteenth Century, and to conduct research for a publication. The Military Collection pamphlets have been used for teaching and research on the period of the French Revolution. Emory University As the collection has only recently been cataloged it hasn't been accessible or used much but a faculty member, Judith Miller, who teaches the French Revolution has brought a number of her classes to see items f rom the collection and a number of her students have used individual pamphlets in class assignments.
43 University of Florida The French pamphlets are sometimes shown to visiting classes as part of library tours or visits. Several faculty are highly aware of the collection and have been very supportive of the NEH grant to improve accessibility. Dr. Audrey Viguier worked in these collections as part of her 2012 UF dissertation: Littrature(s) radicale(s) de la Rvolution franaise : exemples et reprsenta tions dans le thtre d'Olympe de Gouges et les pamphlets de Paris et de Toulouse (1789 1791). Johns Hopkins University None that I know of. Marketing would probably increase use. Kansas University French faculty members are among the most active at KU in using Spencer Research Library. They often hold their classes here to discuss items from our collections. For example, French 720: Introduction to Graduate Study in French, met in Spencer Research Library several times during fall semester 2012. Each st udent gained practical experience doing research in a rare books library by studying and writing about one or more French Revolutionary pamphlets in the Melvin Collection. Several librarians met with the class and collaborated with the instructor in provid ing research assistance. The students became engaged researchers and gave excellent oral presentations at the end of the semester. During fall semester 2013 this class will return with a core of French graduate students but will be expanded to include new graduate students in Russian and German, as well. The latter will do similar research projects but will work with our collections of Russian pamphlets and Rilke ephemera. University of Maryland We have determined that the pamphlets digitized during our Sp ring 2013 pilot project will be of value to professors and students at the graduate and undergraduate levels in the departments of French & Italian, Spanish, English, German, History and American Studies who are working on the literatures, history and cult ure of this period. Five faculty members wrote letters of support for our project, and while we have yet to document their use in coursework, many courses offered each semester would potentially benefit from the improved access to the pamphlets. In Spring 2013, those include: HIST208P, HIST236, FREN352, ENGL255, PHIL320, and WMST250, among others.
44 Newberry Library During the Newberry's project (2010 2013) to catalog its French pamphlet collections, the Library's Research and Academic Programs department noted an eightfold increase in the number of fellowship applicants interested in using French Revolutionary pamphlets for their research projects. Recent and upcoming fellowship projects include "The Stoic Voice of the Late French Revolution, 1794 1815," Beautiful Chaos: Music, Pantomime, and Freedom in the French Enlightenment," and "Living Theater: Politics, Justice, and the Stage in France, 1750 1800." Prominent scholars of the French Revolution such as Jeremy Popkin and Dale Van Kley have also used the Newberry's French Revolutionary pamphlets to write scholarly monographs on the Revolutionary press and the religious origins of the Revolution. The Newberry's Professional Development Programs for Teachers organized a seminar for secondary school teachers earlier this year, "Subject to Citizen, Kingdom to Nation: Changing Notions of Identity in the Age of the French Revolution." A local scholar led this day long seminar, which is also supplemented with a digital module (http://dcc.newberry.org/collections/ identity in the french revolution) with images of French pamphlets and accompanying text that teachers can use for personal or classroom instruction. This fall the Center for Renaissance Studies has scheduled a workshop led by Dale Van Kley to instruct gra duate students on the use of pamphlets as primary sources in their research. Stanford University There are two faculty members working on French Revolution topics (primarily political discourse) who use these materials, and graduate students also use them Yale University Unknown. French pamphlets are occasionally used by professors and students for their teaching and research. However, there are no easily available statistics on this subject matter.

45 7. P lease provide any additional comments or questions to support discussion and planning at the upcoming planning meeting. Please suggest additional questions that should go to the group before the planning meeting and topics to discuss at the planning meetin g. Ball State University n/a Berkeley University n/a Brigham Young University Questions and matters for discussion at the upcoming meeting at the Newberry library could certainly include the types of questions included in 2.1 2.6 above. Our own institution is interested in finding the extent of our own revolutionary collection of pamphlets and in getting those titles ready for digitization. The great question, perhaps, is how to set minimum standards that will allow the Union Catalog of French Po litical Pamphlets, so to speak, to provide seamless access regardless of the holding institution. That may be politically charged, since nobody likes to be told what they "have to do." But if we can select a few logical and necessary standards for metadata at least that can be accepted by all participants, it will ease the way for later cooperation.

46 University of Florida An issue of concern for UF Rare Book Librarian, John Ingram, is the assumption that similar pamphlet titles are indicative of analog documents. His belief is that these pamphlets may be quite different at the level of printing typeface, printer devices as well as content included or excluded and that this should be a part of any future data collection or analysis. Johns Hopkins University Questions we might want to clarify: What is a pamphlet? How are defining this? Less than 100 pages? Unbound? While the date limit is useful for the project, do we want to expand the range to include early C19 imprints that directly treat topics connected with the Revolution? Or earlier C18 materials (e.g. the Diamond Necklace Affair)? Language limit? Do we want to use a standard bibliography as a guide? How are we connecting the various collections and comparing holdings? How will we determine unique items? Kansas University MICROFORM PROJECTS Do any other libraries participating in the present French Pamphlets Project agreed to let Lawrence Thompson of the University of Kentucky microfilm pamphlets from the Melvin Collection and publish them in his French Revolutionar y Pamphlets microcard (later microfilm) series. In return KU was to receive both his French Revolutionary and Spanish Plays microcard series. The agreement was made by exchange of letters. The correspondence file gives evidence of changing interpretations of the agreement obligations by both parties over time. There is no mention of any exclusivity agreement. There is no mention of a contract document, nor is there any contract document in our files. Our active participation began in 1965 and ended in the l ate 1970s. Only those Melvin titles not microfilmed earlier from the University of Kentucky and New York Public Library collections were borrowed. However, the number of our pamphlets microfilmed seems to have been large. Unfortunately, our records do not indicate which of our French pamphlets were microfilmed. Nor can we determine this from our incomplete holdings of French Revolutionary Pamphlets microcards and microfilm (there were misunderstandings about sending microforms to us as part of the agreement ). Some individual records of microcards that we received were added to the KU online catalog.
47 microcards in the Thompson series, only 25 of these records are definitely Melvin Collection pamphlets, and the rest seem to be pamphlets from other unidentified source libraries. The French Revolutionary Pamphlets series is currently being marketed by ProQuest, but apparently only in microfilm format (not digital). My question is whether this long ago project might have implications for our participation in the present French Pamphlets Project? University of Maryland Additional questions for discussion at the plann ing meetings: 1) The French Pamphlet Project (FPP) database will utilize SobeckCM or a similar GLAM (gallery, archive, libraries, museums) system. Does the database only store the FPP metadata? Where do the digital assets reside and who is responsible for them? 2) Do participating institutions have to install software locally or do we just provide our metadata? 3) Can we easily export metadata or digital content from the FPP database?
