Special Collections

Callie Faye Milliken Special Collections of the Margaret and Herman Brown Library preserves those materials that, because of subject coverage, rarity, source, condition, or form, are best handled separately from the main circulating collection.

In order to preserve these materials and to ensure they are available for future generations, they are shelved in closed stacks and are not available for casual browsing and the materials do not circulate. However, we are eager that they are used and access to the materials is provided by a knowledgeable staff using ALCON, the online bibliographical catalog, DigitalCommons@ACU, the Institutional Repository sponsored by the ACU Library, and departmental databases and finding aids.

Because the balance of encouraging use of the materials while protecting them for future users can at times be delicate, certain definite limitations must be employed.

Location: We are located on the lower level of the Brown Library. We are open Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
