Students, faculty, staff, and the public are now welcome to visit Special Collections without an appointment from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.


Though most of our collections are only available by visiting in person, we have unique collection areas and digital collections you can explore on this page.

You can also search all of our collections.

Search Our Collections

As you search, you might notice some online sound and video recordings (e.g. SoundCloud) are unavailable as we migrate to a new platform.

Collection & Research Guides

A collection guide (or finding aid) is a detailed record of an archival collection. It helps researchers understand what’s in a collection so you can decide whether that collection would be useful for your research.

Collection guides are linked from every collection page that has an associated guide. Learn more about how to use collection guides.

For help using collections in your research, see our research guides.
