The Collection belongs to The 1926 Foundation, which is a charity registered in Scotland with registration number SC040789. The Collection is housed at St. Andrews University, where it forms a "Named Modern Collection" on permanent loan to the University Library. Please direct any queries about the Collection to email@example.com.
The Collection is organised firstly into Categories, which are all fairly obvious. Depending on the general category, there are divisions into the separate components; for instance, the Western Front is divided into years and then further subdivided into specific events, e.g. major battles, within that year. Then each Category contains the record of the individual books, sorted in chronological and/or logical manner. Finally, each entry for an individual book contains the following information:
- The full title of the book
- The name of the author
- The name and location of the publisher
- The year of publication
- The ISBN number, where applicable
- Whether purchased new or second hand
- The price paid
- The date of purchase
There is a separate section for Authors. This lists authors alphabetically, giving their full name, titles, any decorations, their nationality, and where it is available, a brief narrative about the author.
The collection currently contains 2,269 volumes by 1,690 authors across 101 categories and 393 sub-categories.
