Located on the third floor (new wing) of the Library, Special Collections and College Archives is also home to the historical records of the College which consist of faculty and alumni files, student publications, campus photos, and administrative files. Many of our collections are showcased in various exhibits throughout the library as well as online.
We support research for the Oxy community as well as the public and welcome all inquiries. To make appointments for research or make research inquiries, visit Research Services. Faculty members are encouraged to work with us to explore incorporating primary sources into learning experiences in class or on assignments. Faculty members are invited to bring students to our reading room for viewings and demonstrations.
History is happening now. Please join Special Collections & College Archives in Documenting Life in the Pandemic. We invite you, the Oxy community—faculty, students, administration and staff, and alumni—to contribute your personal experiences with the pandemic, racial justice movement and national events.
