Medieval Institute Paleography Collection

The Paleography Collection is located on the seventh floor of Hesburgh Library in room 715Q.  The entry to 715Q is through the main reading room (715). In this collection, one finds works related to the study of manuscript and book culture. With call numbers in the "Z" range, most works on manuscripts and early print (books printed in the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries) are found here, along with with a substantial collection of manuscript catalogs.  Journals from the paleography collection are shelved just outside the main reading room, in the range of shelves facing the southwest wall. All paleography collection books have a light blue sticker over the call number label.
