The University Archives is the designated repository for all records, documents, publications and other materials pertaining to the operation of the University of Nevada, Reno, its colleges and schools, and all other agencies formally related to it.
Several print and online reference tools exist to assist researchers in locating materials in the University Archives. Resources range from general collection descriptions in the University's online catalog to other specialized descriptive material.
The Department contains the library’s rare books, book arts collection, manuscript collections, and university archives. The materials in Special Collections are available to all individuals for research and scholarship.
Ensuring the appropriate preservation and disposition of University records is a shared responsibility. Special Collections and University Archives provides professional guidance and expertise in assuming custody of historical records no longer needed in University offices, and in providing access to users.
