About the Collection

The Nicholas B. Scheetz Collection currently comprises nearly 500 items representing the historical arc of Celtic literatures, and their influence on the geographic/spatial concerns of Celtic languages across the British and Irish Isles.  A generous gift from collector and scholar Nicholas B. Scheetz, the collection includes heroic legends of the Finian Cycle and the Ulster Cycle; works of the Scottish, Welsh, and Cornish literary traditions; examples of the 19th century Irish literary revival movement; and works from such important figures as W.B. Yeats, Tim Pat Coogan, Robert Burns, and Brendan Behan.  It also contains works in the major Celtic languages in use today.

Using the Collection

The majority of the materials included in the Nicholas B. Scheetz Collection is currently located in Room 115 on the library's lower level and these books are available to be checked out to all students, staff, and faculty.  Those items that are rare and/or fragile are housed in the Special Collections Room and are available for in-library use during library hours.  All items are discoverable through the library catalog.  (Tip: use the main search box on the library home page, type in Scheetz Collection in quotes, and then refine by book/ebook in the left-hand margin for a complete list of items.) 

Please note that access to Room 115 and the Special Collections Room is restricted.  Speak with someone at the Circulation Desk on the main level who will be happy to assist you in accessing the collection.  For more information about the collection itself, please click on the extended description available below.
