Some of the following major named collections, listed in alphabetical order, have been assembled by collectors and then donated to or otherwise acquired by the Department of Special Collections. Others have been assembled by library selectors thanks to the generosity of donors who have established endowment funds that permit the purchase of books and other materials for the Library. In some instances other library funds are used to acquire titles for these collections. Catalog records for works in other smaller collections within the holdings of Special Collections, like those in larger collections, appear in the Library Catalog or in finding aids available in the Department of Special Collections.
