Cataloged in NAPL OPAC as of May 2003

To see if other items have been added, please check our catalog

Entries appear as in the NAPL OPAC; cataloging inconsistencies have been retained here; for example, different copies of The History of the Hoosac Tunnel by Orson Dalrymple are cited under author and title, respectively. They are not the same copy cited more than once. Similarly, various copies of The History of the Hoosac Tunnel by Edward Sandford Martin, and History of the Hoosac Tunnel by E.A. Bond, are cited under either title or author. The cataloging inconsistencies have been retained here for users' ease when searching the OPAC. When they have been corrected on the OPAC, as they will be in the future, they will be corrected on this finding aid.
