Vietnamese Conflict, 1961-1975 --History --Sources
This is an artificial collection assembled by GTU Library staff during the years of the
Vietnam War. It was assembled as a pamphlet collection. The material was intended as a
research and information collection available to library patrons.
Scope and Content
The staff collected published material (pamphlets, flyers, position papers, sermons,
newspaper and journal articles, brochures) from government departments (United States and
North Vietnam); national denominations; local, national, and international organizations;
and individuals. Each item bears a yellow sticker with accession and classification
numbers. The classification numbers corresponded to the file folder in which the item was
filed. Each file folder was headed with a Library of Congress subject heading. The files
were all headed
Vietnamese Conflict, 1961-, followed by a
specific subject subheading (i.e., Bibliography, Campaigns, etc.).
The materials have been kept in their original file headings. There is an exception,
however. There was one large file folder containing disparate material which, it appears,
had not been fully sorted. It was decided to sort these into new files with new subject
headings added as needed to continue the intention of the original library staff. There
was no particular order of items within a subject file folder.
