About the SIUE President Earl Lazerson Special Collection
Lovejoy Library and Information Services Special Collections and Archives has acquired over 2,300 books with a primary focus on mathematics that were collected over the course of Dr. Earl Lazerson's professional career. This collection will provide valuable content to our users and will continue the legacy of Dr. Earl Lazerson, Southern Illinois University's longest-serving President.
The President Earl Lazerson Special Collection is kept together as a distinct collection that is accessible to students and faculty by request for physical viewing. The collection may be browsed online and is available for examination in the Eugene B. Redmond Learning Center so that the students and faculty are able to handle the collection materials in a quiet, reserved and welcoming setting.
