Cataloged in the library’s online catalog, this collection includes over 600 volumes from the personal library of Dr. Sidney Jourard related to subjects of psychology; more than 1,000 volumes of primarily late 19th and early 20th century with a heavy focus on local, regional and state history, as well as classic literature and history books that stocked the college’s first library. Monographs of current and former faculty are actively collected. The David Wayne Hooks collection is a 1,600-volume library of 19th and 20th century books covering subjects such as life after death, extra sensory perception, out-of-body experiences, apparitions, and altered states of consciousness. The Hooks Collection was acquired by Special Collections in association with the Psychical Research Foundation.
