The Special Collections Division is divided into four departments.
The four departments in the Special Collections Division share a single service point, which is located on the third Floor of Joyner Library's "Drum" section. At the single service point, members of Special Collections will help you request to special collections materials, which can be viewed in the Special Collections Research Room.
Directions to Joyner Library
Because of the unique and valuable nature of our materials, we ask that you observe the following policies when using materials in the Special Collections Research Room. This will ensure that these materials will be around for years to come.
In order to use our materials, patrons will need to register for our Aeon system. You can register before visiting our department, or you can register on site. By registering online prior to visiting, patrons will be able to request material in advance, manage their personal information at any time, and keep track of their requests.
Register with Aeon

The Manuscripts and Rare Books staff provides as a service a minimum amount of reproductions and/or scans of material. For detailed information about our reproduction policies, please see Copying and Permissions.
We encourage you to use your cell phone or digital camera to take photographs of our materials.
