Special Collections and University Archives holds over 3,000 collections; more than a million items ranging from medieval codices and rare books to literary and historical manuscripts, university archives, original art, photographs, film, architectural drawings, and ephemera. We preserve regional history, provide curriculum support, and assist researchers in many fields.

NOTICE: SCUA is undergoing renovations through spring 2017.
View our current public services hours.
Item retrieval will take longer and there may be periods of loud noise (we will supply earplugs).
Architectural drawings, a few manuscript collections (Morse papers, NAACP records), and other select materials will be inaccessible, so please contact us well in advance. Follow our Renovation Updates.
