As an enthusiastic fan of community garden research and someone who has 
handled manuscripts & documents professionally for a few years, I'd like to 
make a few suggestions on making the collection process and return of 
original material as smooth as possible.

Anna, were I you, I would have a catalogue of all the materials collected by 
you for reference when you receive new materials. This way you could avoid 
duplication and the need to log and take custody of new materials.

Suggested procedure: 

1) A log be maintained at the desk where research materials are being 
deposited containing: 
a) Date

b) Donator's name, address, phone, fax & e-mail and requested date for return 
of materials. 

c) If material is already photcopied and doesn't need to be returned, note 

d) Title, with bibliographic information and physical description ( 
manuscript, clippings, floppy disk, photgraphs, etc.) 

e) Are these materials (i.e.,  book, journalism, photographs, published or 
unpublished disseratation)  copyrighted?  If lender is author, get a 
permissions release for excerpting, reproduction or posting on the web. 
Boilerplate releases are available at the University of Michigan library, 
University of Michigan Press or law school.  

f) If the copyrights are owned by others (publishers/authors) a boilerplate 
request letter needs to be sent out to the the appropriate copyright holder 
saying,  basically, that the ACGA is an organization which promotes community 
gardening in the USA - some verbiage about membership and non profit nature 
of the the organization and research, etc. That we believe item X to be  
would be an interesing and valuable addition to our web library and would 
like to  add your material,/excerpts of/photograpic image/etc to our 
informational database, for purposes of research., etc .  Include a 
permissions form, SASE envelope and cross your fingers. 

g) If the material is public domain (government documents in the public 
domain or released by a Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") request note this 
on the log.

h) Give a written receipt and a heartfelt "thank you"  to donator/lender for 
materials. This person has schlepped this stuff to your desk and is doing all 
of us a great favor.

Best wishes,
