Vintage Genre Paperbacks (Bancroft)
In November 2017, Bancroft acquired a collection of over 1,000 vintage paperbacks, mostly in the crime, detective, and thriller genre. Many of the books acquired have a connection to California, and are included in the California Detective Fiction Collection.
In addition to contributing to the study of the literature of California, the books also provide valuable into the publishing and marketing of popular literature in the United States during the mid-20th century. The books were collected by Harvey Brody, a longtime vintage paperback collector, whose collection focused on authors. Many of the books are "paperback originals" (titles whose initial publication was in mass-market paperback format), and the collection was built over approximately 30-40 years. Mr. Brody is an accountant by trade and an accomplished bridge player; he has been named a Grand Life Master (the American Contract Bridge League's highest ranking).

The Irish University Review is a peer-reviewed journal founded in 1970 at University College Dublin as a journal of Irish literary criticism. It is affiliated with the International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures (IASIL).
In its early years, the journal published short literary works (poetry, short stories, one-act plays) as well as literary critical essays.
