The Joseph Wood Evans Memorial Special Collections and Archives Center has several collections of rare books and manuscripts, which have been graciously donated by Faculty, Alumnae and other benefactors. The Ron Kleopfer Collection focuses on the Exploration of the New World, and the Lynn Endowment, which focuses on early editions of English and American literature, have allowed the Archives and Special Collections to acquire many first and rare editions of prominent literary works to enhance our collection. All of these materials are available to patrons upon request and are governed by the same Policies and Regulations Governing the Use of Materials as other archival collections.
