Special Collections

The Special Collections department collects materials of enduring historical and cultural value--housing, preserving, and making accessible materials that are original, rare, unique, fragile, and archival. Our collections and staff support UMBC's research and educational mission and its dedication to cultural and ethnic diversity, social responsibility, and lifelong learning. We offer on-site services in addition to remote support to all researchers. For assistance with research, accessing collection materials, or preparing instruction, please contact the Special Collections staff directly at speccoll@umbc.edu.
