The University of Washington owns a complete set of Curtis' North American Indian and strives to make this resource available to both the UW campus community and the public. Because of the extreme rarity of this resource and its substantial historical and monetary value, we have established some guidelines for access. Our goal is to provide access while protecting the material from damage through excessive and careless use.
