Surveys of Materials by or Relating to Prominent Individuals

Surveys list all of the materials (which we happen to have located) by or relating to a specific individual throughout the Division's collections. Surveys have been compiled in a variety of formats and to different levels of detail. At minimum a survey provides the names of the collections containing correspondence or other material by or about an individual.

Surveys are not guides to complete collections of an individual's papers. The materials listed are, in most cases, not filed or shelved together, but are scattered throughout the Division's collections.

The surveys are not comprehensive: they are meant to serve as a time-saving device. Researchers are encouraged to check the guides to other collections that may prove fruitful for their research as the survey files have not been rigorously updated in recent years; researchers are also encouraged to ask Division staff, in person or via mssref@nypl.org, for reference assistance.

To request material listed in a survey it will usually be necessary to consult the guides to the collections listed in order to identify the box number or volumes that contain the material by or relating to the subject of the survey. Some finding aids are available on the Division's website, but many are only available in paper format in the division's reading room. Division staff will be able to assist readers translate the information in a survey into a request for material.

In many cases the surveys were compiled in order to complete a microfilm order of all the material by or relating to an individual. In these cases copies of the microfilm (or paper copies made from film) can be ordered.
