Cataloguing and Maintaining Ephemera Collections<br />By Tory Barneson and Eve Mayer<br />December 2, 2010<br />LIS 653-04 Knowledge Organization<br />Professor Pattuelli<br />What is Ephemera?<br />Ephemera can be described as written or printed matter, which is not intended to be kept after it's initial use. Also described as:<br />“Materials of everyday life, generally considered to have little or no permanent value, usually because they are produced in large quantities or in disposable formats." -Joan Reitz<br />Ephemera in the 21st Century <br />Challenges of digitization include cost, copyright and unusual formats.<br />The definition of ephemera is expanding in the digital age. Librarians must think of ephemera in terms of new multimedia such as websites and pop-up advertisements. <br /> <br /> <br />Tools for Cataloguing Ephemera <br />Faceted systems offering multiple access points and interdisciplinary access can be found at libraries such as NYPL and Library of Congress but are still developing to accommodate metadata.<br />Cigar Box, 1953. Collection of the New York Historical Society. <br />Record from MoMA's DADABASE for Barnett Newman's Artist File. <br />What is its value?<br />It does retain it's original intended value after use (for example, a theatre ticket), but sustains a different type of value as a primary source for researchers.<br />Institutional Approaches<br />The institutions that we reviewed catalogue and maintain their collections of ephemera differently. For example, NYPL classifies by subject, where MoMA Library classifies by author; ignoring the institution, event, or publisher related to the object. <br /> The Ephemera Society of America <br />Acknowledgments<br />Jennifer Tobias, MoMA Reference Librarian<br />Rebecca Federman, NYPL Librarian<br />References <br />Reitz, J.M.
