About Special Collections and Archives

About Special Collections and ArchivesThe Cline Library is honored to serve as the home for a rich array of archival material which documents the history and development of the Colorado Plateau in a variety of disciplines. The public treasures found in Special Collections take the form of several million items including letters, diaries, and ledgers; vintage and contemporary photographs; oral history interviews; films; and maps. The Library is committed to sharing this regional heritage with a global audience in support of education and enjoyment. Collection strengths include:

The Library contributes to the body of knowledge related to the Colorado Plateau by offering traditional and Web-based reference services, acquiring and making available new collections, adding to the Colorado Plateau Archives, assisting with curriculum development, interpreting resources through exhibitions and presentations, and by reaching out to users to introduce the excitement of conducting research with original materials.

Special Collections also houses the University Archives -- a collection which captures the story of over 100 years of higher education in northern Arizona -- and the archival collections of the Arizona Historical Society/Northern Division, the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office, and the Grand Canyon Historical Society.
