TYPEWRITING

Collecting policy calls for representative acquisition in this subject area. There are approximately 500 references to typewriting in the Public Catalog. Historical materials are particularly interesting, including a number of old manuals of the various systems dating from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A rich source of additional material is found in the collection of shorthand periodicals; these have not, however, been indexed for articles dealing with typewriting.
