Archives & Special Collections

Archives & Special Collections (A&SC) is one of western Pennsylvania's largest repositories for manuscripts, rare books, photographs, microfilm, maps, audio visual materials, and more. We recently merged the departments of the Archives Service Center and Special Collections.

NOTE:  The Archives & Special Collections Hillman reading room moved to our new temporary location in G-20 Hillman (located near the Cup & Chaucer) during the library renovation.  Please stop by to see us!
