Vertical banners in the hallway of MIT's Building 14 read "Distinctive Collections," "Maihaugen Gallert," and "MIT Libraries."The MIT Libraries Department of Distinctive Collections collects, preserves, and makes available the Libraries’ unique and rare materials. Our collections range across disciplines, time periods, and formats and include faculty research and personal archives, Institute records, student and community life materials, Institute publications, the Aga Khan Documentation Center, and rare book collections on various topics of science, technology, engineering, architecture, and the humanities – just to name a few.
