"Folio" is a term used for irregularly-sized books and documents that cannot easily fit on the shelves in the library.

In Coe Library, the folio is located on Level 1 (basement). This link is to a map of Level 1. In general, items from the Coe folio may be checked out. Check the inside of the back cover to see if the book has "Library Use Only" stamped on it.

Items from the folio collection in Special Collections cannot be checked out (do not circulate). These can only be used in the Chisum area and cannot be checked out from the library.
