Special Collections Mission Statement

Revised 2/08

The Mission of Special Collections is fourfold:


Therefore, the objectives of Special Collections are: to gather rare books, manuscripts and other special materials that support the mission of Special Collections, Carrier Library and the University; to process and house these materials in ways that make them accessible to the public while enhancing their preservation; to provide service in their use, to communicate to the University and the wider community the purpose and content of Special Collections; and to encourage potential donors of desirable materials.
