What About the Things That Haven't Been Digitized?

If you want to search all our archives, not just what's been digitized, go to Archival Collections

If you'd like to find rare books and other published items, they have been cataloged and are searchable via Scout (you can limit the Location to Hoole Library to pinpoint our resources).
