Herbals, Illuminations, Maps and Art – The extensive Special Library Collections of Norlin Library, University of Colorado, Boulder
Deborah Hollis, Associate Professor, Special Collections Department, University Libraries

The Special Collections Department houses close to 90,000 volumes and several hundred linear feet of manuscripts ranging in age from 2,000 BCE to the present. The general rare book collection is strongest in English and American literature while the special subject collections reflect the interests and research needs of the Boulder community and the state. The manuscript collections focus primarily on Colorado authors. UC Boulder’s Archives and Special Collections may have something for your interest. Consider a future visit to see disbound medieval leaves to inspire your art work or contemporary photobooks that portray nature’s beauty.  

Deborah Hollis is the Associate Faculty Director of UC Boulder’s Archives and Special Collections.  She and her colleagues enjoy sharing the University’s rare materials with the public and work with Front Range secondary and higher education colleagues to accomplish this mission.
