Deaf Biographical File: contains biographical information of Deaf individuals from around the world. Materials may be from newspaper and magazine clippings, pamphlets, pictures, and other materials. For some individuals, this may be the only information available.
Deaf Subject File: has information about various topics related to the Deaf. For example, collective information on Deaf artists or individual Deaf art organizations.
To access the files, check the Library's Catalog to identify specific topics or personal names. To retrieve the materials ask for assistance from the Library Service Desk. These files are located near the Deaf Stacks on the first floor. The Deaf Collections and Archives staff maintain these files.
