What is Special Collections?

Both Jen Library’s Archives and Special Collections and SCAD Libraries - Atlanta Special Collections house a number of collections of rare, unique, and valuable materials.

We are closed stack, so it helps to have the call numbers of the materials you would like to see. Our materials do not circulate; researchers must use the materials in the Reading Room. If photocopying is necessary, we can make exceptions for two hour in library check out for certain items that are not fragile  Researchers can always take photographs of the material with a camera or a phone.
