Using Special Collections

The Warren D. Allen Music Library's Special Collections is a valuable resource for the
Florida State University community, and especially for the FSU College of Music.
Included are items of local interest, signed items, fragile items, rare items, and "truly
unique/rare/valuable" items. Valuable and unique autograph-manuscripts, first edition
copies of major treatises, piano rolls, Braille music, and items from as early as 1584 are
among the many items contained within.

The materials held in Special Collections are intended to be used. However, because of
the nature of the materials, additional rules and regulations for use are necessary in order
to preserve the collection for future users over the long term. This is especially true of
materials which are particularly fragile, rare, or valuable. With that in mind, the
following rules and regulations will apply to all library patrons desiring to use Special
