Politics, Policy, and Government - Imprints

Special Collections collects broadly in the subject areas of politics, policy, and government. Imprints include monographs, serial publications, and printed ephemera which complement our manuscript and archival collections. Special Collections is also home to the Delaware Collection, a constantly-evolving collection which strives to document all aspects of history and life in Delaware from the prehistoric period and earliest plans for settlement by the Swedes in 1624 to contemporary life. The collection includes the history, culture, domestic, business, and social aspects of Delaware as documented in monographs, serial publications, and printed ephemera.

Any resource in the Delaware Collection will display the location information "Special Collections - Delaware Collection Non-Circulating DEL."
