Center for the Literary Arts Collection

Scope and Contents

These materials were donated to the University of Missouri Libraries by the Center for the Literary Arts in 2006. The materials given to MU consist of signed books by CLA hosted speakers and visiting authors as well as chapbooks and non-traditional print formats.

Current holdings: 343 titles


Most of this collection is stored offsite.  Please allow at least 24 hours notice for research requests.  Contact Special Collections staff to request materials.

All titles are cataloged and available through MERLIN, the University's online catalog, and can be browsed under the author heading Center for the Literary Arts Collection (University of Missouri--Columbia. Libraries). The collection does not circulate. Books must be used in Special Collections' reading room during service hours or by appointment.
