Q. What is Special Collections?
Special Collections contains unique, valuable material:
- books pre-1850, books from presses, 18th - 20th century newspapers, maps, pamphlets or material in other forms such as microfilm
- collections donated from individuals (Frank O’Connor’s personal library) or related to organisations (St Fin Barre’s Cathedral Library)
- theses and manuscripts.
Special Collections is on Q-1 in the Boole Library.
Material can be consulted in Special Collections but cannot be borrowed.
