Doug Holder, Adjunct Instructor of English and head of the office of the Ibbetson Street Press at Endicott College (Beverly, Mass.) has started a small press book collection with the help of Brian Courtemanche Director of Endicott's Halle Library, and his staff: Audrey Koke and Kristyl Roderiques. Holder, a widely published poet, and arts editor of The Somerville News, has long run his own lauded independent small press and literary magazine "Ibbetson Street" from his home in Somerville, Mass. Holder has long admired the great small press collections at the University of Buffalo and Brown University, and has always wanted to bring books of poetry, novels, etc..from the vast and eclectic sea of independent presses from this country and abroad to Endicott College. The Library's website now has a link to the collection: http://www.endicott.edu/Academics/AcadResources/~/media/LibraryMediaLibrary/PDFs/Ibbetson.ashx and it will be updated twice a year. The books listed so far are only a small portion of the books received.
We hope to have an extensive collection and we would love for you to be part of it. Send your donations to :
