Special Collections & University Archives

Today's Hours: Open: 10-4:30 Complete hours

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 a renovation. This will not affect most public services hours, except we will be closed Saturdays through spring 2017. Item retrieval will take longer and there may be periods of loud noise (we will supply earplugs). Architectural drawings and other select materials will be inaccessible until spring 2017. Please contact us well in advance so that we can determine if the materials of interest are accessible. Follow our Renovation Updates.
