Linguistics Library

Upon his retirement, Professor Jon P. Dayley donated his linguistics and anthropology book collection to the Boise State Linguistics Lab. This collection includes many rare and out-of-print volumes, and we are grateful to Professor Dayley for his generous donation. The campus community is welcome to use our library, and some books may be checked out on a first-come, first-served basis.
