The College's library collections were founded in 1797 with the first gift of books, and were greatly enhanced in the 19th century by the 1811 bequest of the private library of James Bowdoin III and by the incorporation of the Athenaean and Peucinian Society libraries. The collections of books, journals, government documents, manuscripts and archival items have continued to grow through gift and purchase. King's Chapel and Hubbard Hall were both built to house the collections, which are now contained in the Hawthorne-Longfellow and Hatch Science libraries as well as in several departmental libraries. On-line cataloging through OCLC began in 1973, and the OPAC was installed in 1990; further automation of procedures and services continued through the 1990s.

Contains collection catalogs, circulation records, correspondence and memoranda, annual reports, and account books relating to the operation of the Library and the expansion of its collections and facilities. Also includes exhibit catalogs, exhibit cards and library bookplates. The bulk of the material is from 1890 on; most is contained within the historical files, which begin with the first librarian, and in the library staff's correspondence files.

Series Description:

This series contains general correspondence and memoranda, accession records, gift lists, procedure and policy statements, 19th century circulation records, collection catalogs, and other material. Most date from the opening of the college through the early 1960s, although some material extends into the early 1990s. Included are items created by librarians John Abbott, Edward Abbott (whose handwritten inscription dedicates the Abbott Memorial Room register of visitors to Jacob Abbott), George T. Little, Gerald G. Wilder and Kenneth J. Boyer, and by other administrators including James S. Coles. The series covers student employment; building construction and renovation; collection development, use and arrangement; and bibliographic instruction. Volumes are listed first, followed by boxes, the latter divided between manuscript and printed material.

Arrangement:

Arranged chronologically by material type.
