Special Collections & Archives

Special Collections & Archives is comprised of five units:

The SCA Reading Room (Norlin N345) is open to students, scholars and members of the general public. Due to staffing levels and a busy instruction schedule, combined with materials that are stored offsite, we ask patrons to schedule an appointment in advance to use rare works and primary sources. Please email SCA@colorado.edu or call 303-492-6144 to schedule an appointment.

Note that all visitors must complete a short registration process and show a current photo ID upon their first visit to the Reading Room. The SCA Reading Room is open Monday through Friday from 11am to 4pm.

You may also request copies and scans of materials for educational use and keeping copyright and permissions in mind.

For more information, please contact Interim Director of Special Collections and Archives Deborah Hollis.
