Special Collections includes items of a rare or fragile nature. The collection may include books, manuscripts, records, and personal papers. Because of the fragility of the items, special handling is required and is essential to the preservation of the item; therefore, copying on a copier is limited to library staff only. Patrons may copy using personal digital cameras, phone cameras, or personal wand scanners. To view items in our Special Collections requires patrons to complete a request form available in the Kentucky Room; all items will be viewed by patrons within the confines of the Kentucky Room. Patrons must be 18 years of age or minors accompanied by an adult to view Special Collection materials.
