The Special Collections department collects and preserves rare and unique materials including rare books, oral histories, university archives, historical manuscripts, maps, microfilm, photographs, art and artifacts. Students, faculty and the public are welcome to access collections and view special exhibits in our Fourth floor Reading Room.

Items from our collections are always on display in special collections. Visit the Reading Room to see our most current exhibit, or visit our digital exhibits on-line.
