>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

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

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

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 *

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.
