Beginning in 1978 A. Robert Minis Jr. endowed the Minis Room and its Collection in memory of his wife, Florence Powell Minis. Since then, the Minis Room has housed a special collection focused on Savannah and the coastal region. All aspects of life in Savannah are included: history, education, economic development, religion, art, music, and social customs. Fiction, biographies, picture books, academic dissertations, and children’s books are collected. The Minis Collection also houses campus publications such as The Inkwell, our student newspaper (1935-.) Copies of some Minis Room books may also be available in the main stacks. Savannah history books are found in classification F 294 S2.
Books and other materials are housed in the Minis Room on Lane Library's 2nd floor. Books are included in the libraries' GIL Find catalog.
