The institutions and associated individuals interviewed for the report are:

  • Brigham Young University, Harold B. Lee Library, Gerrit van Dyk, Mormon History, and Doctrine Librarian, Assistant Librarian
  • Catholic University of America, University Archives, W. John Shepherd, University Archivist and Head of Special Collections

The report was written by Anthony Morris, currently the head of Technical Services at the Fulton Library at Utah Valley University. Mr. Morris is also the author of the study “Emerging Issues in Academic Library Cataloging and Technical Services, 2019 Edition.”

For each university collection, Morris takes the reader through its institutional policies on collection use, development, the handling of controversial materials, donations, culling strategies, acquisition strategies, marketing, education, cataloging, digitization, provenance and more.
