Links: University Libraries, Contact Special Collections

As part of our mission to promote learning, discovery, and scholarship, Special Collections seeks opportunities to introduce new and seasoned researchers in the use of our materials.

Instruction

As part of our goal to support teaching and learning at UNLV, Special Collections encourages faculty and graduate students to incorporate the use of our materials into their research and teaching. Classes meet in the Special Collections interior reading room, and can be tailored to individual class subjects and instructor requirements.

  • Please fill out this online form at least two weeks in advance with the relevant information so that we have enough time to prepare and select the materials for your class.

Tours

Visitors and patrons are welcome to explore the Special Collections reading room on their own, but outside organizations may also schedule a more detailed tour with staff where we can provide general or customized information on our collections. Please email special.collections@unlv.edu if you would like to arrange a tour of the Reading Room, Preservation Lab, or Digitization Lab.
