In mid-August we will begin moving materials from our special collections that are currently in offsite storage to a new offsite storage module. Requests for materials from offsite storage will be processed normally through Friday, August 11, however access to materials will be limited after that date. This process will continue throughout fall semester and will affect the availability of some materials. Researchers with time sensitive requests should contact the curators, collections specialists or staff working with that collection. We thank you for your patience as we complete this work.
The Rare Books & Manuscripts Library (RBML) collects, preserves and provides access to literary and historical published works and archival material, from medieval and Renaissance manuscripts to contemporary novels and zines. Our collections aim to advance research, facilitate discovery and encourage exploration. They are open to scholars, students and lifelong learners.
Holdings include: Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts; early printed books; first editions; literary archives; photographs; posters; artwork; video and sound recordings; scrapbooks; trade catalogs; zines; cookbooks and much more.
