General Guidelines:

Determine University Library Materials Under the Care of The Rare Book & Manuscript Library

Pursuant to University Library policy, the Rare Book & Manuscript Library (RBML) formulates Guidelines for determining which general University Library materials should belong in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library or at the Rare Book & Manuscript Library Oak Street location. RBML is also responsible for all rare books and manuscripts held in departmental libraries outside the Special Collections Division and is working with these libraries on issues of curation, use, and location of rare materials. These guidelines correspond in large part to ALA’s Guidelines on the Selection & Transfer of Materials from General Collections to Special Collections.
