Special Collections will be housed in Room 220 in Carrier Library during the summer. All user services will remain the same and researchers are welcome, so come on down!


If you go looking for us in our old reading room, you’ll find Julia Merkel, our preservationist, hard at work and all the gadgets and gizmos that preserve our collections.

However, we can’t get too comfortable in our new digs. Our ultimate goal is to relocate to Room 203, the former preservation room, in the Fall. The room is currently being prepped to accommodate our readers.
