Harold B. Lee Library. Special Collections and Formats Dept.

This department was created in 2010 following the reorganization of the Music and Dance Department. Catalogers formerly working in the Music Library were moved to the Special Collections and Metadata Catalog Dept. As a result, the department was renamed Special Collections and Formats to accommodate the addition of new types of catalogers. Robert Maxwell (2010-) was the first Department Chair.
