Policies and Procedures for Researchers

  • Collection Development Statement

    The University of Northern Colorado University Libraries Archives & Special Collections’ primary purpose is to serve the research needs of the University of Northern Colorado’s (UNC) faculty, students, and surrounding community; and to collect materials that document the significant intellectual, cultural, administrative, and social history of UNC and its neighboring communities.  

    Archives & Special Collections supports the education and research mission of UNC and the University Libraries. We strive to support intellectual discovery and to empower a diverse community of learners and researchers through collections, education, outreach, and services by acquiring, preserving and providing access to appropriate primary source materials and rare/unique items.

    Archives & Special Collections has three distinct collecting areas: university archives, James A. Michener, and special collections from individuals and organizations in northeastern Colorado. This collection development statement is subject to change. Areas may be added and amended in response to evolving research needs, to augment existing collections, or in response to new academic priorities.
