Collections & Reserves

 

 

The Library houses a few very specialized collections that are non-circulating, meaning they cannot be checked out and therefore must be used within the Library or University Archives.

Pillars collects, preserves, and disseminates the intellectual and creative output of Taylor's students, faculty, and staff. 

This is an online collection and can be accessed from around the world. Additional information on use and submissions is available on the Pillars site.

Ayres Collection

Ayres Collection

 

This collection preserves materials of special interest to the Taylor community and/or materials that are of extraordinary value.

Items in this collection must meet one or more of the following criteria:

  1. Written, edited, or produced by Taylor constituents.
  2. Content is about Taylor constituents.
  3. Materials that are of extraordinary value either because they are rare or because the cost or nature of the material requires special handling or protection.

The Ayres Collection is housed in the Ringenberg Archives, located across from the Library's main entrance, and is a non-circulating collection.

Items on Reserve

 

From time to time, professors put materials on Reserve in the Library in order to allow an entire class to view the same material. 

  • Ask for Reserve materials at the Check Out desk
  • Items are shelved by professor's name and course designation
  • Reserves cannot leave Library premises
  • Loan periods for Reserves are 1 or 3 hours only, at the professor's discretion

Fines for overdue Reserves are $0.25/ hour.
