Scripps Institution for Biological Research Correspondence and Related Materials, 1913-1919, and undated.

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
This series documents Berry's employment as Librarian and Research Assistant from 1913-1916 and as Research Zoologist from 1916-1918 at the Scripps Institution for Biological Research.

Much of the correspondence consists of outgoing letters to scientific organizations, libraries, universities, research institutions, and individual scientists requesting donations of their publications for the Institution's library. The remaining correspondence is with Berry's associates at the Institution. This portion of the letters concerns progress made in the library during Berry's absence; the terms of Berry's employment, particularly changes in his job title and salary; his own research projects utilizing malacological specimens from the Institution; and equipment purchased by the Institution to aid Berry's scientific research.

AMERICAN DOCUMENTATION INSTITUTE, 1922-1954.

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
This series consists of materials relating to the non-profit American Documentation Institute (ADI) and its predecessor organizations. In 1926, Science Service established a Documentation Division to explore means of disseminating scientific information by voice, print, and film, and it began experimenting with microphotographic processes and equipment (see "Plan for Film Record Prepared by Science Service," June 15, 1926, Box 436, Folder 12). In 1934, they established a Bibliofilm Service to microfilm technical material on demand and began a cooperative project with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) (see agreement in Box 172, Folder 13). ADI was incorporated in 1937 as a non-profit corporation with members nominated by several dozen scholarly and scientific groups; in 1941, ADI's Bibliofilm Service operations were transferred permanently to USDA. ADI also established an Oriental Science Literature Service to translate Japanese and Chinese scientific and medical literature and, during 1941-1942, published Far Eastern Science Bulletin. Series 18 contains correspondence of librarians, archivists, scientists, publishers, and government officials in the United States and other countries concerned about the problems created by the rapid expansion of scientific and technical literature.
