8. Public Services, 1886–2009
Scope and Contents
The Records of the Library is a collection of almost entirely paper materials that document the administrative history of the Pratt Institute Libraries and the earlier Pratt Institute Free Library. While much of the records were created internally by staff, there are some that derive from outside agencies, like architects and consulting firms, as well as cooperatives like the Academic Libraries of Brooklyn. The records reflect the various functions of the library, such as the facilities, report submissions, circulation, financial, public services, and archives.
