Special Collections, established in 1958, is a department of the University of Arizona Libraries. Special Collections collects, preserves, and makes accessible historical and contemporary materials relating to Southwestern Americana and U.S./Mexico Borderlands history, Congressional and Political Affairs in Arizona, the history of science, fine and theatre arts, the art of the book, and British and American Literature. Special Collections is committed to developing distinctive holdings by acquiring unique materials that will build in regional topics where there is little coverage elsewhere. Special Collections collaborates with its partners to develop and link educational, research, and public service programs to meet the needs of the University, the citizens of Arizona, and the greater scholarly community.
