About Special Collections
Established in 1982, Special Collections supports and contributes to the learning, teaching, and research of scholars, both within and outside of the University of Northern Colorado community, by providing access to unique primary source materials. Special Collections is divided into two sections, Special Collections and Publication Collections, with holdings ranging from manuscripts and rare books to works of art and audiovisual materials. These holdings provide an excellent resource for researching a wide variety of topics, including student life, regional diversity, history of education, and community history and relations, as well as the work and achievements of UNC alumni and faculty.
