Knox College

Virtual Tour



Knox's oak-paneled Seymour Library, recently ranked 15th in the country by the Princeton Review, is one of the most aesthetically appealing and comfortable college libraries in the nation. But you're going to like more about it than its looks.

Seymour Library's climate-controlled Archives and Special Collections offers an exceptional environment for undergraduate research, particularly in working with primary sources -- including a collection of manuscripts and first editions of Ernest Hemingway and other "Lost Generation" writers. The Finley Collection includes every important primary source on the Midwest printed since 1820. The library also houses more than a quarter-million bound volumes, 700-plus periodicals, and an online catalog you can check from your room.

You'll also find research materials in a special science library housed in the Umbeck Science-Mathematics Center, a music library in the Ford Center for Fine Arts, and specialized collections in Knox's cultural centers.
