Special Collections & University Archives Collection Guides

About This Site

This site searches Special Collections & University Archives’ collection guides. Collection guides, also called finding aids or descriptive guides, are tools that help researchers find information in manuscript or archival collections and include information on the origin, extent, dates, contents, and subjects for the collection. For additional information, check out our HELP page.

Requesting Materials

Some materials are stored in our Automated Retrieval Center (ARC) and require a minimum of 24 hours’ notice to retrieve. We strongly encourage all patrons to contact Special Collections & University Archives, either by email or phone (see Contact Us below) to request materials and/or to schedule a research appointment.
