Using a Special Collections Library or Archive

Special collections libraries and archives are the laboratories where historians do their work.  This video about the USU Libraries Special Collections & Archives unit describes a local repository to which you have access. Note that often your best source of information for how to find materials in a repository is a librarian or an archivist. Please feel free to make an appointment to come to our repository on the lower level of the Merril-Cazier Library or contact any of our curators for assistance with your research. We also have tutorials that help you learn how to locate materials in our collections:
