What we do

The Special Collections Research Center acquires, describes, cares for, interprets, and encourages the use of some of U-M’s most important collections of unique, rare, primary source, and other material in all formats and in a variety of subject areas.

We offer instruction sessions and other presentations to groups, make collection material available for consultation in our reading room, and invite exploration and collaboration through exhibits and special events.
