Title: Little Cookbooks. The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Collection
Repository: Michigan State University Libraries Special Collections, The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection
Historical Note: Little Cookbooks contains thousands of food and cookery related publications produced primarily by companies in the United States from the late nineteenth century up to the present. The collection provides a rich resource to study the evolution and history of advertising, food products, individual companies, technology, food preparation, and food production. It was organized, described, and donated in 2005 by Shirley Brocker Sliker, who continues to add items to the collection. In 2006 the Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Library Endowment was established to enhance Little Cookbooks through acquisitions, conservation, digitization, and dissemination endeavors. Thanks to this generosity, efforts are now underway to describe and when possible digitize and create a fully searchable freely available online collection. Little Cookbooks is an ongoing project. New items from various companies are being scanned regularly. The images of these items are added to the site after quality assurance and copyright permission checks have been performed. Please visit Special Collections, Michigan State University Libraries, to see the print copy if it is not available electronically.
