The Illinois Library is one of the largest university library systems in the United States. Physically, the collection is distributed across campus in more than 25 different libraries. A very important part of the Illinois Library collection is material having to do with the University itself. From annual reports to researchers’ correspondence, the Library holds a significant record of the University’s efforts on behalf of the people of Illinois. This page is intended to act as a starting point for exploration of that record in support of the Ethnography of the University classes.
