We remain closed to the public for the spring 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.
Special Collections will be closed from Monday, December 21, 2020 through Friday, January 8, 2021.
During this time, we will not be available to accommodate reference queries or requests for duplications, digitization or permissions. We will do our best to respond to questions and requests received through December 18. If we need to delay work on any requests, our staff will let you know as soon as we can. Please contact us if you have questions.

Dear Special Collections community, we miss you!
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 LBRYfirstname.lastname@example.org 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.
