Special Collections

What is it?

Preserving and making available special collections of materials is a central role of librarians!  UW Special Collections houses a variety of materials from rare books, photographs, and papers to materials of importance to the University and the Pacific Northwest as a whole.

Types of consultations

If your project includes any sort of specialized materials collection, we are happy to consult with you on how to preserve these materials and make them available to the public.
