Lending Library

Due to the generosity of various graduate students and professors, the Graduate History Student Association is able to lend out a growing number of books from both course work and the comprehensive exam reading lists. These books are available in the Grad Room in Vari Hall for loan to any graduate student in  history, and are organized by subject-author.

We are always accepting new donations to the Lending Library.
