Notable collections of books, newspapers, maps, bookplates, broadsides, and posters have come to the Library over the course of the College's history, many of them new when they were acquired two hundred or so years ago.  Others have been received as gifts to the College or as purchases from endowed funds dedicated to Special Collections materials. The topical groupings below detail some of the more significant collections of published works available in Special Collections & Archives.
