Special Collections and University Archives: 2017 in Review

Special Collections and University Archives had an amazing and banner 2017! Classes, tour groups, and researchers visited the department in person to consult the University Libraries’ unique research and primary source collections. Nearly 1,000 reference questions were answered. Digital collections were launched. New materials, including rare documents and scarce books were received as gifts, and grants and philanthropic support helped to grow the collections. Four exhibitions were mounted in the Central Reading Room. The department was covered by local media and will be featured in two national television programs next year. We look forward to 2018!
