Special Collections at Decker Library include artists' books, rare books, architectural records, audiovisual materials (moving images and audio), manuscripts, publications, graduate theses, yearbooks and scrapbooks, ephemera, reports, catalogs, student rosters, financial ledgers, meeting minutes, and more.
Please note that some materials may be restricted. Unpublished MICA records are not available for outside research for 70 years from date of creation. Documentation is sporadic for many eras.
Special collections and archives material are available for in-library use (unless otherwise noted) during the hours the Research Help desk is open. During the academic semester*, those hours are:
Monday - Thursday: 12:00pm-6pm
Saturday & Sunday: 12:00pm-6:00pm
*Summer and Winter Break hours will differ. Check the homepage for Research Help Hours.
Special collections and archives material are not available for browsing. For this reason, we highly recommend making an appointment and requesting materials in advance of your visit. To make an appointment, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
