Special Collections

 The American Library Association defines a special collection as a collection of library materials separated from the general collection because they are a certain form, on a certain subject, of a certain period or geographical area, rare, fragile or valuable.                                                   

The Richmond Public Library identifies certain materials in its collections as "Special Collections" according to the ALA definition. These Special Collections may be housed apart from the Library's general collection on specific shelf ranges or in a single room because of their specific subject content, their format, or because of their rare, fragile, irreplaceable or valuable nature. Each specialized collection of the Richmond Public Library has its own collection and use parameters, clientele served, and purpose for existence.
