Big Books from the Library’s Oversized Collection

This Library exhibit during Fall 2017 showcased books from the Library’s Oversized Collection. The Collection contains approximately 8,000 books that measure over 28 cm (11 in.). It is tucked away in the southeast corner of the Library’s second floor and is often overlooked. Feel free to borrow any of the "big books" in the Oversized Collection.
