Special Collections & Archives will be closed to the public December 14, 2015 - January 22, 2016 while we move into our newly-renovated space. Please contact us with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (818) 677-2832.
Special Collections & Archives in the Oviatt Library is the home of CSUN's rare book and periodical collections, as well as its archival and manuscript collections. Archival and manuscript collections can consist of many different kinds of materials, including correspondence, diaries, maps, university records, organizational records, photographs, and audio or video recordings.
In Special Collections & Archives users can perform research, engage in classes using primary sources, or view exhibitions. Our collections are made available to researchers in a supervised reading room. We welcome users, and ask for understanding concerning our special procedures, which are designed to ensure these collections are available in the future.
