Special Collections Research Center
Rare Book Collections
Forestry resources in all several formats, including manuscripts, archives, printed books, photographs, and artifacts combine to form extensive research collections. The Carl A. Schenck Papers document the establishment of the first American school of forestry at the Biltmore School, while the Bruce J. Zobel Papers provide insight into forestry education during the later half of the twentieth century.
The Special Collections Research Center is documenting current research in forestry, including new developments in forestry biotechnology. Please visit the Research Center’s website for announcements regarding new collections.
Printed books, from the Schenck, Zobel, and other collections, along with classic works in forestry history, may be located via the library’s online catalog, and are available for consultation in Special Collections.
