About our projects
This site showcases the ways in which University of Nevada, Reno students use the department’s collections for research and learning. Special Collections and University Archives houses approximately 5 million individual primary source items in over 3,500 archival collections. Our Book Arts collection has more than 2,500 volumes and includes authors from around the world, and we also have rare books that are as much as six hundred years old. All of these resources are rich source materials for deep research and engaged learning. Through projects such as the ones on this portal, Special Collections and University Archives serves as a laboratory and exploration space.
