School of Social Work Records, 1898-circa 2000s, bulk circa 1930s-1980s

Series III: Social Work Library, 1898-1982

Records in Series III: Social Work Library are a mixture of printed ephemera kept by librarians as reference materials for students; administrative records of the Social Work Library, dating from circa 1970s-1990s; and librarians' various attempts to gather historical "archives" of the school and library. Some school historical records in this series were gathered by the librarian Celestine Tutt, whose doctoral dissertation concerned the history of the Social Work Library. A small amount of material in the series also documents the Social Work Library's participation in an internship program administered by the Columbia University School of Library Service in the 1970s.
