Special Collections and University Archives
UMass Amherst Libraries
The Department of Special Collections and University Archives of the UMass Amherst Libraries (SCUA) supports research and learning in four major areas: the history and experience of social change; innovation and entrepreneurship; the histories and cultures of New England; and the past, present, and future of the University of Massachusetts.
SCUA’s collections may be investigated in any of three ways:
- Brief descriptions of every manuscript and archival collection under our care are included on this site (the UMarmot catablog) along with links to highly detailed finding aids
- Credo contains many tens of thousands of digital items, including the complete papers of W.E.B. Du Bois and Horace Mann Bond
- Books and periodicals are searchable through the general Library catalog.
