Since the beginnings of the American Society for Microbiology's Archives program in the 1930s, the records of the Society, as well as non-Society materials on various topics related to microbiology, have been collected. These include clippings, brochures, manuscripts, reprints, government bulletins, etc. As these materials were being refoldered and inventoried, an attempt was made to move as many items as possible to the book collection: researchers are therefore advised to search the ASM Book Collection on the UMBC Online Catalog as well as the vertical files for items on a given topic.

 

The following is a list of topics covered in the vertical files. The quantity of material varies greatly; files marked with an asterisk are more substantial (at least 2" of material.) Cross-references to other parts of the ASM Archives Collections are included.


Researchers are encouraged to contact the Archivist, Jeff Karr, at jkarr@asmusa.org for further information.
