Rare Books & Special Collections


The Paul & Josephine Mayer Rare Book Room of Baldwin Wallace University includes those materials that - because of age, scarcity, uniqueness, or value - are stored separately from the general collection and do not circulate.  Although these materials are secured for preservation reasons, they should still be handled and used - through classroom instruction, tours, exhibitions, and research.  Those who wish to learn about and use our materials should contact John Curtis, Head of Special Collections, at (440) 826-3571 or
