Shott Collection

The Shott Collection and Weber Reading Room are made possible by a generous gift to the NDSU Libraries. The collection includes award-winning and popular fiction and non-fiction material on all subjects: travel, science, history, exercise, food, and much more. The mission of the Shott Collection is to develop a collection of materials that allow students to explore new subjects, spark the imagination, and grow as individuals. The Weber Reading Room holds the Shott Collection and provides a comfortable space to study or socialize – it even has a fireplace!
