About Special Collections


Archives image (decorative)

Georgia State University Library's Special Collections include physical collections housed at the Atlanta Campus Library and digital collections available on the web.

The Special Collection department's mission is to collect and preserve unique historical materials that connect the Georgia State community, scholars and the public to the human experience.

All Special Collections are open to faculty, staff, and students, to outside scholars and to the public.

Digital Exhibits

Go to Digital Exhibits

Just as the Special Collections department has physical exhibits at the Atlanta Campus, their librarians assemble digital exhibits from items in their collections. The digital exhibits provide context to the items in the collection.
