Rod Library Special Collections & University Archives welcomes donations of books, papers, photographs, and other media that are in keeping with its collection development policy and within the limits of its staff and spatial resources.
Of special value to the book collections are local historical and folklore materials, fine press books especially from Midwest printers, and classic fine printing.
Materials that provide documentary evidence of faculty, staff, and student activities on this campus are potential candidates for inclusion in the University Archives. Some examples include records of UNI faculty committees and groups, unpublished manuscripts by faculty members, research and teaching files, records of student organizations, correspondence, UNI publications, office and departmental records, memos and reports, diaries and journals, scrapbooks, posters and materials from events, photographs, and other AV materials.
In the area of manuscripts, Special Collections seeks to build on its strengths in everyday family and personal life in the Midwest, local political history, and professional education associations. Other kinds of collections will also be considered.
If you have material that you wish to donate, please visit with the Special Collections & University Archives staff in the Rod Library, call (319-273-6307), email email@example.com, or contact Rod Library's Resource Management Unit.
