Gothic Romance Lending Library
Donated to McDaniel College
Gothic Journal donated its 3,400+ volume Gothic Romance Lending Library (GRLL) and a set of Gothic Journal back issues to McDaniel College's Hoover Library in Westminster, Maryland, where both were delivered on May 13, 2013. McDaniel College has agreed to pay for the GRLL's shipment to Maryland and to retain in its Hoover Library at least half of the collection, which contains approximately 1,200 duplicate titles.
“We are very excited to receive this wonderful donation of gothic romance literature that will complement our growing American Romance Collection made possible by the Nora Roberts Foundation," said Hoover Library Director Jessame Ferguson. "We look forward to making books from the GRLL available to interested readers and researchers for many years to come. After we process them into our circulating collection, they will be available to anyone in the McDaniel College community or to the general public via interlibrary loan.”
Please help spread the word about this exciting donation. For details, see the Gothic Journal press release available at this link.
