Winter has arrived…as well as winter break!

Yesterday, central campus may have looked almost exactly like this early 20th century winter scene (Beardshear can be seen in the distance)!

The Iowa State University Library, including the Special Collections Department, will be closed from Saturday, December 22nd through Tuesday, January 1st.  The Special Collections Department will be open during our regular hours (9am-4pm, M-F) starting January 2nd.  We wish everyone a wonderful winter break, and safe travels!

While our department is closed, we thought you might be interested in viewing additional winter scenes from our collections available online.  A number of images can be found here.  Quite a variety of items in Digital Collections can also be found by searching under the keyword “winter.”
