MLA archives catalog (Catalog)
Title: MLA archives catalog
Author: Liza Young
Abstract: The MLA archives catalog is a digital catalog inventorying its collection. Currently, the catalog consists of one records group, MLA Records, the largest group in the archives. It holds paper records generated by the Modern Language Association (MLA), 1896–present. Records primarily include correspondence, memoranda, and similar documents related to administration of the association. Some personal correspondence between executive directors, presidents, staff, and members is included. Early association history is missing from the collection. This is likely due to the association’s lack of an official headquarters until 1928. The focus of this cataloging project is the General Chronological Collection (GCC), which was one of the largest collections in the archives and remains the most topically diverse. As of 29 January all cataloged materials were once stored in the GCC. Those that were misfiled in the collection, due to previous labeling as “miscellaneous,” mislabeling, misfiling, or lack of a label were pulled from the GCC and arranged in their proper collection.
