Lockwood gift cataloging

Lockwood materials are an SPC gift collection which consists of two separate subgroups: the Romani/Gypsy collection and the Foodways collection (mostly cookbooks). The majority of the non-English titles have already been cataloged by library vendor Backstage, so in-house cataloging will mostly be dealing with English or Western European languages. Boxes of these materials are currently stored in Giltner. Books to be cataloged will be delivered periodically to the SPC cataloging shelves by facilities.
