 What is an Archive and Special Collection?

Our department holds books, documents, photographs and other items that are either very old, fragile, rare, or important to Purdue University Calumet, Purdue University North Central, and Purdue University Northwest history. Many of these resources are irreplaceable, so our policies and procedures are different from the rest of the University Libraries.  Finding Aids are used to find archival items.
