What type of material is held in Special Collections?
Answered By: Susan Kirkpatrick Last Updated: May 10, 2017 Views: 15
The books, pamphlets, manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, and maps held in Special Collections & Archives are considered to be of lasting research value and include examples of the earliest printed works (incunabula), books and pamphlets published between the 16th and early 19th centuries (STC and Wing items) as well as more modern titles. In order to preserve the material for future readers these collections are housed in a secure and environmentally controlled setting.
Additional information is available on our Special Collections & Archives web pages.
