I found an item in the catalog in a collection called "Special Collections" at the Tennessee location. What does this mean?

"Special Collections" refers to a collection of books that are not in the circulating collection because of their historical importance, value, or physical condition. These books are in a closed-access room on the 1st (lowest) floor of the Glass Memorial Library on the Tennessee campus. These books may be used in the library 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and at other times by appointment.


The library has circulating copies of many of the Special Collections books. Also, books published in the United States before 1928 are in the public domain and the full text may be freely available through Google Books, Project Gutenberg, Internet Archive, or similar sources.
