Reading the fine print in Special Collections

A tiny collection of books held in Special Collections is dwarfed by the library's other five million volumes. These 4,500 itsy-bitsy books are “miniatures.” From pocket-size to micro-miniature, most books in the collection were donated by one person, Charlotte M. Smith. The gift inspired others to add to the collection. Visitors may get an up-close look at the miniatures in Special Collections on the third floor of UI Main Library.
