Each year the Special Collections creates a variety of displays to highlight the many materials in the collection. Periodically, we also create a short publication to accompany the display. These publications, called Topics, are generally a more in-depth discussion of the materials that were used in the display.
The purpose of Special Collections at Loras is to protect and preserve printed and manuscript books, and other manuscript materials of importance that would be difficult or impossible to replace. While these items are placed under restricted access, they are intended for use by students and faculty. We encourage the Loras community to use them for their studies and research projects.
There are over 7,500 items in the collection and the majority can be found by searching the Library Catalog.
Collections of note include:
