Special Collections

From pop-up books to medieval manuscripts, we have more than 41,000 books and other unique items available for your research, creative and academic projects.

Class visits

Faculty, instructors and community groups are invited to bring students for a hands-on experience using the books, manuscripts and other materials in these collections. We can help you create an educational opportunity for your students that will encourage them to think critically about sources and ask new questions.
