About the Special Collection

Panitza Library Special Collection was formed in 2019 and currently contains approximately 1200 monographs, published prior 1920. The books were originally part of a closed Fairley Dickinson University Library brunch and were purchased and transported to the newly formed AUBG campus in 1994, thanks to Dimi and Yvonne Panitza’s generous donation.
