The Special Collections & Archives Division of the Florida State University Libraries advances research by acquiring, preserving, and providing access to original primary source materials. The division includes Special Collections & Archives Research Center, Heritage Protocol & University Archives, The Claude Pepper Library, Cataloging & Description and the Digital Library Center.
Through exhibitions and programs, the division supports active learning and engagement. Collections of unique manuscripts, historic maps, rare books, photographs, and university archives offer abundant opportunities for discovery and scholarship. Strengths of the collections include Napoleon and the French Revolution, poetry, political papers, the history of Florida, Southern business history, and the history of Florida State University.
We invite the university community, scholars, and the public to explore the rich collections found here.
