Call for Materials

Do you have an unpublished, obscure or hard-to-locate item related to Thomas F. Torrance, James B. Torrance, or David W. Torrance? We are collecting and gathering materials in any format, including:

1. Audio or video recordings
2. Original correspondence
3. Newspaper or newsletter articles
4. Course or lecture handouts
5. Photographs
6. Obscure or hard-to-locate publications

If you contact us about an item, let us know if it is available online, or whether you have it in your possession. Records of all items will be added to the Sources and Studies bibliographies to facilitate discovery by future scholars. The scope of the bibliography project includes materials of all formats. The bibliographic entry for any given item contains a web link as well as all the information we can gather about the original setting. If copyright does not prevent redistribution, then the resource file will be attached to the bibliographic record. In this way open access digital resources will be shared on the new Torrance Fellowship website to be implemented beginning next year. For all materials under copyright, we will respect the right of first publication and seek to deposit them in the appropriate institutional archive. Links to archives and relevant finding aids are included in the bibliographies.

The establishment of the Sources and Studies bibliographies is the first step of a two-phase project. The first step, now underway, is to gather materials and add them to the bibliographies (both Sources and Studies). The second step, to begin next year, is to implement a new, interactive website with built-in bibliographies and copyright-free resources.

How can I know if you already have my item? If in doubt, just ask us; we welcome any inquiry. But if you download the bibliography files from the Torrance Bibliographies home page then you can see if it is already entered. If it's not already entered in either the Sources or the Studies downloadable file, then we are not aware of it. If a url is provided as part of the bibliographic record, then we have linked to a web page where it may be obtained for a fee or with a subscription. If there are no restrictions on distribution, then the item will be marked with an "Open Access" tag, and in that case, we have attached it to the record. Items marked "Open Access" will be made available on the Fellowship website when the new interactive website launches next year.
