These materials include first editions of classic texts, signed and inscribed editions of major literary works, examples of fine binding, materials that offer significant historical documentation and the College Archives. Collection strengths include the College Archives (special emphasis on the Independent Study program), British and American history and literature (specializing in 18th century), Theatre, and Women's Studies.


Buildings & Grounds Collection

The College of Wooster Buildings and Grounds Digital Collection contains digital images of buildings and grounds that are affiliated with the College of Wooster or the city of Wooster. Sub-collections include the College of Wooster Lantern Slide collection and the College of Wooster Postcard collection.

Herbarium Sheets Collection

The Herbarium Sheets Collection was created and donated by Mary Ronsheim while she was a student at the College of Wooster in 1950. The sheets contain leaves collected on the College of Wooster campus and at nearby locations in the community. This collection will be of particular interest to those interested in regional history and dendrology. For a map of current trees on campus, please see: Gift & Memorial Trees
