Macalester College Library's Special Collections are open to all researchers. Affiliation with Macalester College is not required, but we do ask all researchers to provide their name, contact information, and general topic of research. Our Special Collections materials do not circulate, so materials must be used in our Reading Room on the 2nd floor of the DeWitt Wallace Library.
