Special Collections is the newest department in the Proctor Library. Starting in 2012 the collection is an outgrowth of the Proctor Library's existing collection, merely a separation of books identified as not appropriate for general public access. Some books have been donated to the library and were automatically placed in Special Collections by either request of the donor, or determination by the Special Collections Librarian. Books make up 99.9% of the collection with the other .1% being letters, photographs, other odd pieces of paper removed from books now in the collection, or magazines.
