Regional and local history will always be a focus of our collections. Special Collections is the repository for printed texts and manuscripts on Arizona and its Borderlands.
These collections document the region’s culture and history, including accounts of Native Americans, the impact of Spanish and Mexican settlement, and the influx of other groups into the region starting in the 19th century.
