Digital reproduction will be limited beginning May 1, 2023 with digitization expected to resume the middle of October 2023.
The Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) at Swem Library connects students, faculty, and researchers with rare and unique materials, including:
- original manuscripts
- rare books
- audiovisual media
- and more
Special Collections is open to all researchers for onsite research, but with limited capacity in our reading room. We strongly encourage requesting an appointment to ensure that we will be able to accommodate your visit. We may need to limit your appointment to two hours depending on demand. Please email us at email@example.com with requests for appointments, research consultations, and any other questions.
Please note: The reading room will close to patrons at 3:00pm on September 28 for event setup.
Digitization update for fall 2023
Swem Library is moving things around! Due to summer construction plans affecting our Digital Services department, digital reproduction will be limited beginning May 1, 2023 with digitization expected to resume October 2023. This temporary hold will affect all new reproduction requests larger than 10 pages.
Please visit our Digital Archives to view Special Collections' material already available online.
Thank you for your understanding! We look forward to assisting you with your digitization projects coming this September.
