Special Collections &
Special Collections and University Archives, a division of the University Libraries, acquire, organize, preserve, and provide access to Stony Brook University's rare books, manuscripts, and unique research collections in support of the university's five-part mission.
Access to collections and reference services are extended to neighboring communities, the wider geographic region, and remote users to advance the university's leadership role in scholarship, economic growth, technology, and culture.
The University Archives includes material created by the university that is of enduring legal, fiscal, administrative and historical value.
All are invited to explore and consult the collections.
