Welcome to Southwestern University Special Collections!

This site highlights notable Special Collections holdings and digital exhibits at Southwestern University, as well as special projects in research and pedagogy from the Southwestern University community.

Special Collections at Southwestern University creates physical and virtual spaces to experience the history of Southwestern University and Texas as well as the heritage of the printed and written word. For more information about the collections, our finding aids are available online. Many of our collections have been digitized for inclusion in the University of North Texas Portal to Texas History, which is our primary repository for digitized materials.

Students, faculty, and members of the public are all welcome to utilize our materials. Special Collections is also enthusiastic about collaborating with faculty and students who wish to use our digital environment for projects in teaching and research. If you are interested in visiting Special Collections or collaborating on a project, feel free to contact us.
