Rare Books

The CSU Library has a small collection of rare books. To preserve these items, due to age or value, these books are in a closed collection on the lower level of the L. Mendel Rivers Library. CSU Library Staff can retrieve items during normal Library hours. Ask for help with or access to this collection on the main level of the Library.
