Special Collections, established July 1966, houses the Library’s rare books and pamphlets, manuscript collections, photographs, the University Archives, and the Map Collection. The Department’s major purposes are to acquire these materials, make them available for use, and preserve their integrity for future generations of students and scholars.
Traveling researchers should connect with us in advance in case there are changes to the schedule.
