The Special Collections staff is currently working remotely as a precaution against COVID-19. We will continue to support the research and instructional needs of the University's students, faculty, and staff as much as possible without access to our physical repositories. For questions or assistance, please write us at spcoll@appstate.edu and we will get back to you as quickly as possible, although response times may be longer than normal. Learn more about our current services here.

Discover the unique collections of Appalachian State University. Located on the 4th floor of Belk Library and Information Commons, Special Collections is home to books, manuscripts, and artifacts about the Appalachian region, the University's history, stock car racing, and British history, as well as many other topics.
