The Maine Room Collection
Rice's special collections of historical resources and local genealogical information are stored within the "Maine Room". These reference items are unavailable for checkout. In the Maine Room, you have access to maps, photographs, yearbooks, and more!
The Maine Room contains many archived and irreplaceable books. In order to safeguard these items, no backpacks, purses or other large bags are allowed inside. Staff cannot supervise personal items, so bags may not be left at the front desk.
To gain entry into the Maine Room, please sign the log sheet located on Rice's circulation desk to receive a key. If you have specific items you are looking for, the staff can retrieve 1-2 books at a time and bring them to the main floor. Please call ahead to request this service at 439-1553 ext#4.
