This exhibit includes a huge variety of materials. The unifying theme is, they're all things that our staff members really, really like!
 
UO Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) is the University of Oregon’s primary repository for rare books, historical manuscripts and photographs, university records and faculty papers, and one-of-a-kind artifacts and documents.
 
SCUA holds 30,000 linear feet of manuscripts, archival collections, photographs, and over 100,000 rare books--resources that reflect the history and culture of the university, the state of Oregon, the Pacific Northwest region, and selected aspects of American and world history. Come and see what the people who work with these materials every day have chosen to highlight.
 
From theatrical photos to sports memorabilia; from Civil War bullets to celebrity telegrams; from medieval manuscripts, to nineteenth-century greeting cards, to twentieth-century comic books, to contemporary artist's books--the items on display are just a small representation of the huge and diverse storehouse of knowledge that is stewarded by SCUA.
