Overview

Special Collections at the University of Southern California oversees the university's primary source collections including archives, manuscripts, historic photographs, and rare books. The department contains more than 200,000 volumes, more than 1000 archival collections, and more than 2 million photographs. 

Our purpose is to collect, preserve, promote and foster access to primary source material in our main areas of strength: Holocaust and Genocide Studies; Iberian and Latin American Studies; Lewis Carroll and Alice in Wonderland; Lion Feuchtwanger and the European exiles of the 20th century in Southern California; Natural History; Southern California Regional History; and USC history.

We collect, preserve, and help our community use these archives, rare books, and other unique materials. We invite all USC undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff to explore our unique primary source collections for your research and creative projects.  In addition, we lend intellectual excitement and vitality to the campus and community through our public programming, exhibits, and work with classes and students.

A research account is required to consult our materials. Go to our Specialized Research Collections Request page and register for a research account. This online request service allows you to make requests for materials, track the progress of your requests and plan your visits to our reading rooms anywhere anytime. After registering for an account, you will be able to request items online directly from USC's online catalog and our online finding aids.

If you are interested in donating rare books, manuscripts, or archives to USC Libraries, please contact John Juricek, Collections Strategist, juricek@usc.edu.
