Special Collections is one of the most unique places on campus!
Located on Floor 6 of Milner Library, we offer visitors the opportunity to interact with a wide range of books and non-book materials spanning all four of our collections.
Special Collections is staffed by enthusiastic personnel who aim to assist visitors with their research projects. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (309)438-2871.
Often collections—Abraham Lincoln, Children’s Literature & Historical Textbook, Circus & Allied Arts, and Rare & Fine—grow best through generous donations.
Special Collections is pleased to sponsor unpaid internships to students desiring experience in our unique place.
For those seeking internship placement, please work through internship coordinators in the academic departments on campus.
