The Special Collections Research Center is open to any interested researcher upon presentation of a valid CASE ID or other valid official identification card.
Special tours or presentations may be arranged by application to the Special Collections staff.
The Henry R. Hatch Reading Room, located in Special Collections on the second floor of Kelvin Smith Library is named in memory of Henry Reynolds Hatch, a prominent Cleveland businessman and philanthropist who was a generous supporter of both Western Reserve University and Adelbert College. Of note in this lovely setting is the Pazyryk Carpet, a reproduction of the earliest and most significant pile-weave carpet discovered in modern history.
Return Case or OhioLINK items to any Case library, yes. Case libraries have different hours, so your book might not get checked in on the day you return it if you use a bookdrop.
Return the CPL@Case-KSL books only to KSL, so the collection is here for you & others. Case libraries are not responsible for returning other local libraries’ books. Returning public library books here will not check them off of your account at those libraries.
