The Library has an events space seating 50 on same floor as Special Collections, but not dedicated to Special
Collections. All other events require scheduling and/or renting space elsewhere on campus.
Depending on the event, the campus offers several alternative lecture spaces where we can hold a talk and host a
reception. The preference is to host events in the library.
NB: While we have used space beyond the library for fundraising events for our Water Resources Archive and have
traveling exhibits for our topical archive collections, our Special Collections events have been held within the library.
