Libraries often receive gifts of unique, specialized materials to add to their collections. In 1999, the University Libraries at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln received a quilt newsletter collection as an addition to the American Quilt Study Groups quilt collection. In order to provide the best access to the collection, the cataloger in charge of the quilt newsletters developed a unique classification number for the collection and organized the collection by state of origin, followed by organization.
