  • "Covering two and four year institutions that have special collections open to the public, this guide describes a remarkable array of holdings: topical collections in history, science, religion, the arts, and literature; and collections devoted to the work of a single individual, whether an architect's portfolios or a poet's letters. There are also holdings that center upon local concerns -- records, ledgers, and other documents -- and others formed on the basis of genre -- childrens' books, genealogies, dictionaries, diaries, and the fascinating category of books about books"
  • "With more than 1,800 profiles of institutions of higher learning listed and two indexes -- one for institutions, one for subjects -- special collections delivers more data, more efficiently, than any other directory. Arranged alphabetically by school within each state, the entries provide crucial data about institutions and their collections: Address, telephone numbers, and listings of key library administrators; Institutions' affiliation, enrollment, and general holdings; Names of special collections and detailed descriptions of their contents; Indexes of both schools and subjects; Donors' names, authors collected, geographic place names, and book and magazine titles" -- Book jacket
