dating from 1536 to the present. This includes
the schoolbook collection of about 5,500 volumes
printed before 1901, featuring books used in
educating American children and includes the
most complete known collection of McGuffey Readers.
Miami's campus computer network provides Internet
connection to residence halls and major academic
buildings; King library has dozens of Windows
