Special Collections Research Projects

Listed here are projects that are the work of Special Collections librarians in their role as librarian/scholars. These projects may provide information about resources that are not held in Special Collections, although many items may be found in our collections. The works are published here by the Department of Special Collections in order to present new scholarly information that will be of interest to researchers.
