Section 3A1.2 :
Honors Papers

Honors papers will shelve in Special Collections, if we have additional copies, they will shelve in Reference.
They do not Circulate or go out on Interlibrary Loan. For permission to over-ride this talk to the Archivist or a Public Service Librarian.

Honors papers are generally cataloged for Special Collections, added copies go in Reference. Honors papers are the only Special Collections materials, currently, that are stamped and labeled. You don’t need a date due sticker though.

Cataloging: honors papers are unpublished manuscript materials.

They are cataloged locally on Voyager, not on OCLC.
