Here you will find rare books including notable copies of works of literature, history, religion, and other subjects. In addition to books, Special Collections also has archives of materials relevant to Southwestern University, Georgetown, and Texas history.
To view Special Collections materials, follow the signs on the second floor of Smith Library Center to the Special Collections Suite - Room 241 - just come in and poke your head into one of two offices! Don't worry that you're interrupting! The collections are open from 9:30 to 12:30 and 1:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday. The Special Collections staff will have you sign in and then they will retrieve books for you. You can study the materials you requested in the reading room, which is labeled on the map as John G. Tower Library.
VISIT OUR WEBPAGE for contact information and more!
You may discover special collections materials while searching the online catalog, but if you want to deliberately search just special collections materials, use the special search box at our WEBPAGE - or ask for help in special collections. We're eager to help students and researchers find what they need.
