The Department of Archives and Special Collections at the Arizona State University Libraries is the administrative host for seven archival repositories and special collections primarily documenting the diverse history, arts and cultures of Arizona and the Southwest:
- Arizona Collection
- Chicano Research Collection
- Benedict Visual Literacy Collection
- Child Drama Collection
- Labriola National American Indian Data Center
- Special Collections
- University Archives
Each of the repositories collects current and historical information in a variety of formats including books, periodicals, microforms, photographs, institutional records, personal papers, videotapes and digital information. The department currently preserves and makes accessible over 20,000 linear feet of archival materials, more than one million photographs, and ca. 50,000 monographic titles (including rare books). These materials are stored in three storage areas in Hayden Library and in a state-of-the-art offsite storage facility at the ASU Polytechnic campus.
Materials are made available through the Luhrs Reading Room and the Labriola Center Reference desks 45 service hours a week during the fall and spring semester, Saturday hours by appointment only. Please contact our reference desk at (480) 965-4932 for more information.
