Special Collections & University Archives
Knight Library, 2nd floor North, 15th & Kincaid Street, University of Oregon
Second floor by main entrance.
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.
Special Collections and University Archives will be CLOSED to the public July 1 through July 23.
Due to the facilities project, we will not be able to fill any duplication requests for the first three weeks of July, July 3-21. The inability to fill requests could extend to a fourth week, i.e. through July 30.

Item retrieval will take longer and there may be periods of loud noise (we will supply earplugs).
Architectural drawings, a few manuscript collections, photograph collections, and other select materials may be inaccessible, so please contact us well in advance. Follow our Renovation Updates.
