James G. Bruce Shell Collection

Located in the north and south wings of the 5th floor of the Science-Engineering Library are two exhibits of many seashells amassed by James G. Bruce during a 30-year period. He collected them from all the world's oceans, with the exception of the Arctic and Antarctic, and donated them to the UA Libraries in 1984.
