The John Martin Rare Book Room is located on the fourth floor of the Hardin Library and is normally open Monday through Thursday from 8-12 and 1-4.  If for some reason the Rare Book Room is closed during these times, access to the collection is available by contacting the Hardin Library Information Desk at 335-9151. The Rare Book Room is closed on weekends and University holidays. Because staff commitments may occasionally result in the Rare Book Room being closed, appointments are strongly recommended and may be made by contacting the Librarian at 319/335-9154, and directions to Hardin Library
