Early Books in the University Libraries Collections

Early books and newspapers in the Ball State University Libraries collections may be found using CardCat's Early Books and Newspapers Finder.  You may search by keyword, author, title, or subject, and can either choose a particular publication year or designate a range (e.g. 1880-1885).  This search will also retrieve results available digitally through Hathi Trust.
