Some of the rare books are kept in secure cases on the first level. SERVICES: Selective interlibrary loan and photocopying, and reference questions dealing with holdings.
Holdings consist of monographs and serials, theses, letters and personal manuscripts, dental catalogs, and directories. Of particular interest: most of the rare early books on dentistry; S.S. White Dental Manufacturing Company catalogs; emphasis on the life and work of Thomas W. Evans.
