Homepage Introduction

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.
