SCA Seeks Contributions for

Special Collection at UC Riverside Libraries 

The SCA is pleased to announce that the University of California Riverside Libraries will be opening a permanent Society for Creative Anachronism Special Collection and Archive in 2011. The materials in this collection will include a variety of publications and other media both by and about the Society since the group’s inception. (If you are interested in viewing UCR’s other collections, please visit their website at http://library.ucr.edu/?view=collections/spcol.) 

>From the Stock Clerk’s office, the SCA will be supplying copies of The Compleat Anachronist, available copies of Tournaments Illuminated, officer handbooks, and other materials, but as this is but a percentage of materials ever published, the SCA needs contributions from individuals. Specifically, members are being asked to provide back issues of Tournaments Illuminated (please check with Countess Leonora, below, for the issue numbers needed), arts and sciences publications, kingdom histories, relevant theses, local and kingdom newsletters, photographs, event publications, videos, newspaper clippings (must include newspaper name, city and date), copies of kingdom law (past and present), personal SCA diaries, music, books and any other publications that chronicle the history and activities of the Society. Please note that this collection is for media only and will not include any artifacts (i.e. no costumes, armor or other physical items).

If you have publications or media you would like to contribute, please contact the SCA Liaison to the UCR Libraries, Countess Leonora Morgana (Stacie Tibbetts) at collections at sca.org or at 714-544-8490 before 8pm PST. (The University Libraries are unable to accept direct donations on behalf of the Society, and sending them materials directly could result in their loss.)

If you are contributing an item that has been privately produced, you will need to include a gift donation form, which can be found at http://library.ucr.edu/?view=collections/spcol/donations.html. (This isn’t necessary if you are donating your copy of a Society publication.) All personal submissions will be juried to ensure that the materials are representative of the Society and to avoid supplying them with duplicates.

Please be aware that the existing SCA archives will not, as a whole, be part of this donation (although select materials, such as governing documents, may be included). Master Aldred von Lechsend aus Froschheim (Charles Alderson), the Society Archivist, will continue to gladly accept contributions and be available for reference questions. He may be reached at archivist at sca.org.
