Welcome! The Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives collects, preserves, and provides access to unique primary sources, archives, and rare books documenting the history of ODU, the Coastal Virginia Region, and beyond. By digitizing our materials, we enhance research and scholarship across the world. We also actively support student learning by offering class visits, research consultations, and internships.
Special collections and archives are for everyone! Our diverse and inclusive collections cover a wide range of topics that enrich scholarly opportunities, and we welcome students, faculty, staff, community members, and researchers from all over the world to use our collections and services.
