Some items in the Library are held in Special Collections. Item call numbers designate the collection (if any) to which the item belongs. These collections are kept in separate locations within the Library or in the Mahler Student Center. Some Special Collection items may be checked out, while the use of others must be confined to the Library (indicated as “Circulation Status” below). NOTE: “CLC” in the Location column below refers to the Collins Learning Center.
