Q. Where can I find rare books? Do I need an appointment to see them?
Most rare books are housed in the John Peace Library Reading Room.
- Rare books with the location "JPL Rare Books" and "ITC Library" do not require an appointment.
- Rare books with the location "Archival Collections" and "Archival Collections at Main Campus," require an appointment.
