Biographical Note

Formerly known as the New York Regional Catalog Group, 1923-1948. The aim of the New York Technical Services Librarians (NYTSL) has been to keep abreast of developments in the fields of cataloging and classification and to work with the American Library Association's Resources and Technical Services Division. Some of the prominent American librarians to serve as president of this group include Margaret Mann, Wyllis E. Wright, Minnie Earl Sears, F. Bernice Field, and Charles W. Mixer.

Scope and Contents

The New York Technical Services Librarians (NYTSL) records include correspondence, minutes, memoranda, reports, questionnaires, programs, financial records, membership records, typescript copies of papers presented at meetings, and related printed materials. Several topics of note are the 1926 meeting to honor Margaret Mann; the 1926 cooperative cataloging issue; and the 1946 American Library Association constitution matter.
