The Research Libraries of The New York Public Library have a sizable and long-standing collection of materials on Mormon history. Beginning with the 1899 donation of the William C. Berrian collection, which contained 451 books, 325 pamphlets, 52 volumes of newspapers, and over 500 individual, unbound newspapers, the Library has maintained the collections in Mormon history at a high level. They include histories, biographies, newspapers and other periodicals, government documents, diaries, and letters. Highlights of the collection include the early editions of the Book of Mormon and one of nine known copies of The Book of Commandments. The materials on Mormon history are supported by an excellent collection of American history.
In addition to these collections, which are housed in the General Research Division, the Manuscripts and Archives Division possesses a number of related letters, diaries, typescripts, and ephemera. Thirty-seven letters enhance the papers of the Alfred Theodore Schroeder collection and six other letters came to the Library in the scrapbooks of Charles L. Woodward. Various other files not primarily concerned with the Mormons may include other "Mormon" correspondence. The most prominent items include correspondence from Joseph Smith, Orson Hyde, Sidney Rigdon, Willard Richards, and one of the diaries of Brigham Young, Jr. Readers wishing to use these materials must apply to the Office of Special Collections in Room 316.
Using the Catalogs
General instructions for locating materials are given in the Research Guide, How Do I Find a Book?. The following information is specific to the topic at hand.
The Dictionary Catalog contains some 2,200 items relating to Mormon history. The bulk of materials is found under the subject heading Mormons and Mormonism. This heading is broken down into various sub-headings which are arranged alphabetically with two exceptions. Firstly, Mormons and Mormonism--Bibliography precedes all other subdivisions. Secondly, the geographical subdivisions come mostly at the end in their own alphabetical sequence. A list of related subject terms precedes all of these headings. In addition, the Book of Mormon is listed under Mormon, Book of.
In CATNYP, the online catalog, there are several major subject headings: Mormon Church; Mormons; Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; and Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. All of these have a number of subdivisions, and history is a valid subdivision for any of these headings. The subject terms used in CATNYP records are listed in the Library of Congress Subject Headings available electronically at www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/lcco.
Researchers may choose to use a key word approach in place of, or in addition to, the subject approach; a key word approach will result in more titles. It is imperative to use the conjunction “and” between the appropriate words or phrases in a key word search. For example: Mormons and history
Mormon Church and women
Mormon Church and doctrine

For articles embedded in biographical dictionaries, consult the Biography and Genealogy Master Index; however, the finest single reference source for biographical materials on Mormons is

Most written history of the Mormons can be classed as either sympathetic or critical. Since the mid-20th century, the number of balanced, scholarly treatments has increased considerably. The following list focuses on works dealing with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Utah) and covers other movements only incidentally. For specific treatment of individual Mormon Churches and dissenting factions, see Dale Morgan's and Steven Shield's bibliographies (above).
