Dear Special Collections community, we miss you!
The University of Arizona Libraries Special Collections will continue to be closed until further notice.
We're fulfilling requests by digital means first and whenever possible. If absolutely necessary, we'll provide on-site visits by appointment only. Currently, appointments are limited to University of Arizona students, staff, and faculty.
We're closed for the fall semester, but our Special Collections staff are still here to help you with your curriculum and research work.
If you're considering using primary sources in your curriculum, reach out to us as soon as possible for consultation. We aren't able to accommodate in-person classes right now, but we can discuss options for curricular development using existing digital resources.
Current activism in response to police brutality reminds us of previous calls for justice in Tucson.
Tucson has had its share of protests echoing larger national movements, but perhaps its most iconic local protest was the occupation of the El Rio Golf Course. It was the summer of 1970, and the protest marked an intensification of efforts by the Manzo Area Council and residents of Tucson's west side to secure the creation of a neighborhood park.
Due to COVID-19 concerns and recommendations for social distancing, Special Collections will be closed starting Monday, March 16 until further notice. During this time, you can still contact us about our services. Please be aware that we will be unable to accommodate any visits or fulfill any reproduction requests during this closure. Permissions requests will be handled on a case by case basis and responses to reference queries may be delayed.
We are undergoing shelving improvements that may affect retrieval of the Health Sciences Library Special Collections books and manuscripts March 9-27. Please email us at LBRYemail@example.com for updates or to make research arrangements.
Special Collections will be closed December 23, 2019—January 3, 2020. We look forward to seeing you January 6.
University Libraries is pleased to announce the appointment of Verónica Reyes-Escudero as the new Katheryne B. Willock Head of Special Collections.
We will be closing at noon on Friday, May 11 to accommodate commencement. We apologize for any inconvenience.
