Collections Overview

Special Collections holds and manages collections of rare books and other valuable, unique, or fragile materials that would be impossible to replace.  Consequently, access to and use of our holdings is limited—that is, materials do not circulate, photo-reproduction is on a case-by-case basis, and some items can only be consulted with staff assistance.  Please be mindful that you might request an irreplaceable book and, as such, this book requires careful and deliberate handling.

Collection strengths include Book Arts, Tennessee History, Equine Studies, Civil War, and Historical Works on Printing.
