ZSR Special Collections & Archives

ZSR's Special Collection and Archives may contain useful materials on your topic. There are a variety of ways to search these materials, depending on their format. Contact SCA for more help with searching the collection. 

1. Search SCA materials (including books) in Primo. Limit your search to the Library Catalog and use the Location facet on the left side to limit to items in Special Collections (6th Floor). 

2. Search SCA Digital Collections to locate items that have already been digitized. These include the Old Gold and Black newspaper, the Howler yearbook, and some rare books and manuscript collections.  

3. Search SCA finding aids to locate unpublished materials in manuscript and archival collections that are not digitized. (Contact SCA at for help using finding aids!)
