Printed Ephemera

The Department houses a number of collections consisting wholly or primarily of printed ephemera. These are typically stored in folders and boxes, like archival collections, and are accessed through archival finding aids. Among the formats most frequently encountered in these collections are pamphlets, individual periodical issues or clipped articles, programs, and book jackets. For ephemeral formats in which image rather than text is paramount, see Broadsides, Prints & Posters.

In addition, the Joyce Sports collection contains a very large component of printed ephemera (game programs, media guides, yearbooks, schedules, etc.).
