The Jennewein Collection consists of Western literature and history, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as papers and photographs. Though the library has limited resources, this collection aims at comprehensiveness. Because of the attempt at comprehensiveness for this collection, some of the above stated “principles” may not be applied as strictly as they normally would when selecting materials.
