Garnett Mystery Collection Comes to Ball State's University Libraries

A collection of almost 3,000 women-authored mystery novels was recently donated to Ball State University LIbraries. The Garnett Mystery Collection was originally donated to the Women's Studies Program in 1999 where it was housed in the Women's Studies Resource Center in the Burkhardt Building on the Ball State University campus.

Julee L. Rosser, Interim Director of the Women’s Studies Program, said, “The Garnett Mystery Collection offers unique research value. The members of the Women’s Studies Program are thrilled to share this resource with the community. We are thankful to the people at Bracken Library for all their work in transporting, cataloging, and everything else they are doing to make the collection available. We are also very grateful to the donor.”

When cataloging is complete, the volumes will be shelved together in an area on first floor of Bracken Library.
