The Frankel Rare Books Room is a closed stack facility that houses the special collections of the O'Quinn Law Library. The collections consist of rare and out of print books and documents in American, Texas, and Foreign Law subject areas and the publications of the Law Center Faculty. Although access to special collections is restricted, persons wishing to use a specific item may request in-house use of the material from a reference librarian. Rare book materials are non-circulating and must be used in the main facility of the O'Quinn Law Library under the supervision of a reference librarian.
The collection is accessible Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., excluding holidays, or by appointment. Appointments to use these materials can be arranged online by using the Rare Books Collection - Use Request Form or by contacting the Head of Document Services, Helen Boyce, at (713) 743-2286.
Materials that are housed in the Frankel Rare Books room receive a catalog location of Law/Rare Books.
