Rose Library Catalog
This catalog will appear as a searchable, excel spreadsheet. Please take note of the entire call number when trying to locate a book. While Goddard Library’s Voyager system has about a third of Rose Library’s collection in their database, the book’s exact location (reserved or new title) is only available using the link below.
We appreciate your patience as we work towards making Rose Library’s collection available throughout the campus.
The Diana Bartley Collection
From the late 1990’s until her death in 2011, Diana Bartley was dedicated to collecting books on behalf of the Strassler Center’s Rose Library. Growing up in the midwest, the daughter of a Navy captain, she closely followed the events of the War in Europe. She was horrified reading about accounts of the Holocaust. After a varied career as an automotive journalist, an editor at Esquire Magazine, and a financial consultant, she began collecting books about the Holocaust and newspaper clippings on the subject. Reading about the founding of the Strassler Center, she inquired about donating her collection of 1,500 volumes. After that initial gift, she continued to meticulously research and collect books, donating 500-600 books annually. Ms. Bartley continued to purchase and donate books until her death in July, 2011. Today, the Bartley collection comprises over 7,000 books encompassing many genocides, and including Holocaust materials dating from 1933 to 1947.
