Special Collections is located in on the second floor of the Seminary Library, in the Rare Book Center (LI-231).
Normal opening hours are 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are closed on weekends and holidays.
Our collections are open to everyone, including students, faculty, researchers and the general public.
Readers are welcome to drop in during regular hours. (If you don't see me, try knocking on the door; I might be back among the shelves.) You can also contact me to schedule an appointment. I am always happy to answer questions or to help you locate items in the collection.
Readers are asked to leave coats, bags and other books in the outer room. Laptops and pencils are permitted in the reading room.
Special Collections includes three distinct collections:
Nearly everything in the collection can be found by searching the Library Catalog.
