The IHRC is pleased to announce that a multi-year project to catalog ethnic newspapers in the Center's collections has successfully concluded. Technical Services staff of the University of Minnesota Libraries finalized on July 2, 2009, cataloging entries for the IHRC's holdings of 46 Greek through Ukrainian titles.
Several years ago, the project began with cataloging of newspapers in General through Finnish categories. The current portion of the project was led in spring and summer 2009 by Cecilia Genereux of the University Libraries. Laureen Boutang of University Libraries served as primary cataloger, assisted by student workers. Halyna Myroniuk, senior curatorial assistant for the IHRC, served as the IHRC coordinator.
Patrons can now search for all IHRC newspapers through MNCat, the University Libraries' print catalog, to accurately locate materials held by the IHRC. The newspapers that were cataloged are non-circulating and are available for use in the Elmer L. Andersen Library reading room, through arrangement with IHRC staff.
The titles included Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Near Eastern, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian and Ukrainian publications.
