"We must not fall into the terrible trap of thinking that because certain printed or manuscript materials have been photostated or photocopied or microfilmed, or digitized that we are relieved of our responsibility for preserving the original." — Terry Belanger, retired founding director of Rare Book School, University of Virginia



Access to offsite collections

Mon, 04 Aug 2014

Earlier this month, several collections moved to the Library’s new offsite storage annex.  To facilitate research, we recommend patrons contact Special Collections staff at least 24 hours in advance of their visit to request any of the collections listed below.  This will provide staff time to retrieve boxes from the offsite location and bring them to the Special Collections reading room (now located in 219A in the Mary Couts Burnett Library).
