Rare Books and Manuscripts

Personal Papers and Organizational Records

Rare Books and Manuscripts holds manuscript collections by or about authors, literary research, printers, political issues, film history, science and math research, Southeast and East Asian war correspondents, and translators' papers. 

Arizona Archives Online (AAO) contains finding aids that provide more detailed information for some of these collections. To limit a search to ASU's Rare Books and Manuscripts holdings, select "Special Collections" under Arizona State University.

Not all manuscript collections have an AAO finding aid. The Accession Records of Rare Books and Manuscripts contain brief descriptions of some unprocessed collections.
