Special Collections

Special collections and the deposit collection are housed in the closed stacks in the Reserve Area, 4th floor Moody Learning Center. Special collections holdings are identified in Discovery as McAllister Collection; the deposit collection is identified in Discovery as ADAR for Alamo Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution.

Full-time San Antonio College faculty members are allowed to check out books from the special collections for a period of two (2) weeks only, non-renewable, upon presentation of the faculty ID card.

Special collections and the deposit collection are available for in-library use only, to ACCD faculty, students, and employees with valid ID cards. The materials are to be used in the reading area set aside for this purpose in the Reserve Department. The stack area is closed to browsing at all times.

Community members may also use materials from the special collections after surrendering an ID from the list of accepted IDs. Use of the ADAR collection requires prior approval by the parent organization.
