Series VIII. Call Slips, 1971- 2013

Materials are restricted. To request permission, please email rbml@columbia.edu.

This series consists of charge cards that detail material used by researchers from the manuscripts collections, rare books and the Bakhmeteff archives. When material is requested from one of the Rare Book and Manuscript Libraries collections, a two-part, carbonless call slip is filled out, consisting of the original top half (the flimsy) and the carbon-copy (the charge card) bottom half. For rare books and some manuscript material (such as volumes and folders paged individually), the flimsy is left on the shelf in place of the material paged. Once material is shelved, the flimsy and the bottom half of the call slip are brought back together to check that material has been returned by the user and returned to its proper location.

The call slips, prior to the 1980s, featured a blue heading band for manuscript requests and a brown band for rare books. The form includes the user name and requested item title and location. The call slips are filed by academic year (June to July) in two sequences: the charge card is organized alphabetically by collection name and the flimsies are organized chronologically by shelving date. Originally kept separately by division, call slips for all collections were filed together starting in the fall of 2008 ( all of RBML collections combined). Since February 2013, all user information is entered in the Special Collections Research Account Aeon software.
