Separated Materials

Many items originally placed in the previous separate collections were removed during the reorganization to more appropriate divisions within the department such as the map collection, the Arkansas Collection, and the broadside collection. All removals have been documented within a special folder in the accession files for South by Southwest.

A pamphlet is a single sheet with multiple folds. A brochure is a stapled or string bound publication of up to sixteen pages.
