The Kauffman Collection is intended to enhance the Library’s collections with works of high quality, both in content and construction. Principally falling within the humanities, the works embody classical ideas and ideals, or have made significant contributions to other eras. To assist the library patron in advanced appreciation of the literature, this collection also includes supporting materials that assess, critique, and examine the chosen works.
Many of these materials are electronic books, videos, and audiobooks. Recently added are searchable, digitized reproductions of significant works and documents from public and private sources, from lands near and far.
