A. M. Todd Rare Book Room

  • A scene from the scroll painting "Welcoming Spring"

The collection is located on the third floor of Upjohn Library Commons, Room 326, in rooms equipped with environmental controls specifically designed to protect printed materials.

The A.M. Todd Rare Book Room houses a distinctive collection of rare and unusual books and manuscripts acquired by the college through the benevolence of alumni and friends. Taken together, the materials demonstrate the nature of intellectual inquiry over the past five hundred years and thereby reinforce the strength of the general library collection.
