Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts

With over 300,000 printed books and codices and over 14,000 linear feet of modern manuscripts, the Kislak Center’s collections span the ancient world to the contemporary era and are global in scope. The collections are interdisciplinary and continue to grow. Particular strengths include but are not limited to medieval and early modern Europe; South Asia; the history of science; and American letters and publishing.
