During the Spring 2020 Semester, most departments are working remotely. Phone calls will forward to voice mail in many cases, but you may wish to use email as a primary means of communication.
Due to high demand of services and limited availability, expect delays in processing of requests from some units.
The Special Collections department collects and preserves rare and unique materials including rare books, oral histories, university archives, historical manuscripts, maps, microfilm, photographs, art and artifacts. Students, faculty and the public are welcome to access collections and view special exhibits in our Fourth floor Reading Room.
Items from our collections are always on display in special collections. Visit the Reading Room to see our most current exhibit, or visit our digital exhibits on-line.
The Special Collections department is the recipient of a 2014 Council of Library and Information Resources Hidden Collections grant. Find out more about this project on our project blog Discovering the Southwest Metroplex.
Access to Special Collections materials is by appointment only. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We continue to provide online reference, licensing requests and requests for reproductions. Please allow additional time for processing.
