The Library collects a variety of materials whose topical scope is of a general nature and not easily assigned to academic subject areas. Examples may include broad collections of essays; works covering museums or the subject of collecting; questions and answers; general humor; information about academies or learned societies; and the history of scholarship. General Works also include news magazines, popular periodicals, and newspapers. Also collected under the General Works category at the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library are materials for Library and Information Science. This Library and Information Science collection supports the work, teaching, selection and research needs of the University's librarians and library staff. It also supports the research interests of students and faculty interested in such topics as bibliography, information technology, or information literacy.
