Abstract

This paper discusses the importance of fugitive and/or grey literature in the field of women's studies and the inherent difficulty in providing bibliographic control and access for this type of print collection. Further, it presents a methodology designed to improve bibliographic control and access of not only Rutgers' Women's File, a collection of grey or fugitive literature, but to suggest that such a system could enhance access to similar collections by including information about their presence in library information systems and/or online catalogs and thus increase potential access by user populations. This method can also serve as a model for access and control for other non-conventional print collections in libraries.
