Kraemer Intergeneration Collection

intergeneration logoThe Kraemer Intergeneration Collection consists of books, videos, and other materials related to intergenerational studies and concerns. Intergenerational materials in this collection take the distinct approach of studying an occurrence or topic with consideration to the multiple generations involved. The resources in this collection provide an opportunity to study multiple generations' interactions with and impacts on each other from a variety of different topics and subject viewpoints. The Kraemer Intergeneration Collection is supported by a generous endowment from Sandy Kraemer.

The Kraemer Intergeneration Collection is integrated into the Main Collection on the 3rd floor of the Kraemer Family Library. Materials are designated with a bookplate on the inside cover that indicates the materials is a part of the "Kraemer Family Library Endowment."

New books and materials that are added to the collection can be found on the 2nd floor of the Kraemer Family Library on the Kraemer Intergeneration Collection display, which is a part of the Kraemer Intergenerational Space.

All of the Kraemer Intergeneration Collection materials are identified in the catalog with the alternate title "Kraemer Family Library intergenerational collection."
