Oh Look, There’s a Bell!

Thank you, everyone for a wonderful 2016 GCNA Congress! And kudos to Ellen Dickinson and the members of the Yale Guild on a job well done!

For those you who were not able to make it to Connecticut, we wanted to share some of the information that was presented about the GCNA Archives and the Anton Brees Carillon Library at Bok Tower Gardens.




In 2013, we received a “Cataloging Hidden Collections” grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR)! Huge shout out to Joy Banks for writing and receiving this grant!!!  Other recipients in our award year included Princeton University , Colombia University, George Eastman House (Kodak), and the Yellowstone Park Foundation.



Processing is the physical sorting and organization of the materials in a consistent and systematic manner. That means that every piece of paper in these file cabinets and boxes has passed through our hands multiple times in order to ensure it is in the proper place.



How to Access the Materials

To access library materials such as books, scores, recordings, etc., please view the ABCL Library Catalog!

To access the finding aids, which detail information in the vertical files, the GCNA archives, and digitized papers, photographs, etc., please view Bok Tower Gardens Digital Collections!

History is written by what gets left behind!
