Additional Uncataloged HSRC Periodical Titles
The Holy Spirit Research Center holds an estimated 1,200 periodical titles from Pentecostal and Charismatic Movement. Currently, 600 of these are cataloged in our library cataloging system accessible at Library.oru.edu. But there remains over 600 titles that have been documented but have not yet been cataloged. Therefore, this list serves as a finding aid for additional titles we have but are not in our system. The holdings information is limited at this point since full documentation has yet to be done. For information about the exact holdings, you can contact the HSRC (email@example.com) or the Director, Daniel Isgrigg (firstname.lastname@example.org). Below is a PDF of the alphabetical list.
Finding Aids - Holy Spirit Vertical File
Vertical File Finding Aids
The HSRC has a vertical file of over 1700 files on various individuals, groups, and topics within the global Spirit-empowered movement. These files contain information collected over the past 50 years such as letters, artifacts, brochures, pamphlets, unpublished writings, photos, and other documents related to each person, group or topic. A master list of these files is currently under audit. Several of the individual files have been indexed and there are finding aids available. Some items also have been digitized and are available on the Digital Showcase.
