New Location for Dougherty Reading Room in Special Collections

New location in the Cratis Williams Reading Room

Access to archives, manuscripts, and rare books, currently available through the Dougherty Reading Room (Room 442) in Special Collections, will be relocated to the Cratis Williams Reading Room (the area by the tall windows) in Special Collections starting Monday, July 22, 2013. Hours, contact information, and most services will remain available for patrons using the rare, non-circulating materials in Special Collections. Services normally provided through the Dougherty Reading Room have been temporarily relocated due to construction occurring on the Library's 4th floor this summer.

Hours for use of materials are 10:00 am. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Click here to learn more about using our rare and unique collections.
