Archives/Special Collections supports and promotes the research use of primary source materials. Its goal is to locate, acquire, preserve, and make available to the public the most significant historical records of Sangamon State University (1969-1995) and the University of Illinois at Springfield as well as regional history records and manuscripts whose research strengths support the University's curriculum. As a member of the Illinois Regional Archives Depository System (IRAD), administered by the Illinois Secretary of State/Illinois State Archives, UIS Archives/Special Collections serves as one of seven depositories in the state for local government records. Special Collections includes non-circulating library material such as rare, valuable, and fragile books and periodicals.
