Archives and Special Collections

Archives and special collections departments generally collect, preserve, and provide access to resources that support the research needs and education of students, faculty, scholars, and the public. The primary source materials held in archives and special collections may include manuscripts, photographs, video and film footage, maps, architectural drawings, oral history interviews, rare books, ephemera, and other one-of-a-kind materials. Archives and specials collections departments generally provide reference service and research assistance.
