SCSU Special Collections and Archives

Buley Library Special Collections and Archives (SCA) is where you will find rare and unique materials such as manuscripts, rare books, prints and photographs, university archives, the New Haven mayoral papers, and other resources. Our collections may be consulted in the reading room located on the Ground Floor of Buley Library. Due to the rare and fragile nature of special collections, all materials are non-circulating.

Some of the highlights of our collections include 19th and early 20th century children’s literature, artists' books, labor posters, the mayoral papers of John DeStefano, Jr., and materials documenting the institutional history the of Southern Connecticut State University.
