Special Collections

Special Collections supports the teaching and learning objectives of the Trinity University community by collecting, preserving, and providing access to primary source materials that align with the curriculum. These materials include manuscript collections, ephemera, pamphlets, periodicals and newspapers, rare books, and noteworthy editions, as well as named collections of particular distinction. Special Collections also houses library materials which are particularly fragile.
