Florida State University Libraries accession books, 1909-1969 (inclusive) (bulk 1923-1951).

The handwritten accession books record all commercially-published books, government documents, and journals titles of publications acquired by the FSCW and FSU Library collection from 1909-1951. Each accession book includes the date and number of accession, author, title, place, publisher, date of printing and publication, volume, source (with name of donor or bookseller), and cost. Gaps exist between 1909-1918 and 1918-1923. The two handwritten circulation record books indicate borrowing statistics for faculty and students, by subject area. Each volume covers ten years (1949-1959; 1959-1969). The collection not only documents the growth of the FSU Library's collection; it is also significant to researchers studying the types of materials purchased by a major university library during the first half of the 20th Century.
