Special Collections Mission

The mission of the Special Collections Department is to support the teaching and research interests of the Brandeis community and broader community of scholars by collecting and making available primary and special secondary resources in all formats. The Department houses two types of collections: rare books and archival collections. It strives, through its varied activities, to make these materials available to the Brandeis community and to visiting scholars. Researchers and students are most welcome to use the Department's materials, in accordance with the Department's policies.
