Scope

Size

There are no size boundaries since this collection is going to LSF, with the exception of broadsides, which will remain in Beinecke and be classed using the year/number scheme.

Marking

The following guidelines are used when marking volumes for the Hohenzollern-Schlaberg-Hughes Collection
  1. Mark on Yale bookplate when there is one, generally in the upper left corner
  2. Mark on back cover, lower right hand corner, when there is no Yale bookplate unless cover is too dark
  3. Mark on verso of last page, lower right hand corner, when 1 or 2 don't apply. The lower left hand corner is the alternate location when the lower right hand corner is unusable
  4. If the last page is unmarkable (e.g. too dark or shiny or filled with text or illustrations), mark the verso of the first usable page from the end
