"Researchers have already used this set of materials." Lorraine Nero - Senior Librarian/Special Collections Librarian.
The other deposited archives can only be accessed once they have been processed:
"Researchers will be welcome to consult the material once it has been processed." Lorraine Nero - Senior Librarian/Special Collections Librarian.
The other archives are similar to the Witchbroom archive in composition, in that they are organised in similar categories: manuscripts, correspondence (personal, agents, publishers acceptances and rejections of manuscripts) reviews and academic articles, records of awards, photographs, publicity records.
Manuscripts of the short story collections include some of the earliest writings of the author with responses from different writers, mentors and peers.
The Aelred’s Sin archive includes texts, which were important research materials and influences for the author at the time of writing.
The Night Calypso Archive contains recorded interviews with ex-patients and medical staff of the Chacachacare Leprosarium.
It is the intention of the West Indiana Collection, when it is possible, to archive other deposits from time to time covering other published novels: Night Calypso, Light Falling on Bamboo, Dangerous Freedom and the non-fiction book, Golconda Our Voices Our Lives. It is the intention also to house not just archives of present literary works but also those to be written by Lawrence Scott; to archive the life of the author, through notebooks and other correspondence together with personal and family memorabilia.
