Archival Collections: Start Here

NOTICE: Changes Due to COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently closed to the public. We are open to the campus community by appointment only. See Special Collections Onsite Research Requests for more information. 


Welcome to our guide to using Archival Collections to search for unpublished materials. 

  • If you're new to archival research, start with the tab Understanding Archives.
  • If you're an old hand at archival research but just need to get a handle on our particular search interface, skip to the tab Searching the Repository.

Reminder: If you're looking for published items, those are cataloged, so you can find them via Scout.
