Special Collections & University Archives

The Rod Library Special Collections and University Archives Division collects, preserves, and provides access to rare, valuable, and delicate collections of books, manuscripts, and institutional records.

The Special Collections staff is prepared to assist you in using all of its book, paper, and media collections.  However, the staff has special expertise in UNI history.  If you have questions about or interests in any facet of UNI history--people, organizations, buildings, campus traditions--please come to see us in Special Collections.
