Hello and welcome to "The Hidden Archival Collections of the Burke Library!"
This is a blog which will help educate and raise awareness for two important archival collection groups at the Burke Library at Union Theological Seminary (Columbia University Libraries): the Missionary Research Library Archives (MRL) and the William Adams Brown Ecumenical Library Archives (WAB).
MRL and WAB are being fully arranged, described and made available with the help of the Henry Luce Foundation. The Luce Foundation awarded the Burke Library with $295,000 for this three-year project (more can be read through the press release).
The project began in August 2011 with the hiring of me, Brigette C. Kamsler, as the project archivist. I'm looking forward to sharing more information on the collections with all of you!
