The Special Collections and Archives Department at Z. Smith Reynolds Library offers a wealth of resources for the undergraduate and graduate student at Wake Forest. Our diverse collections include books, manuscripts, archival records, photographs, prints and posters, music scores, maps, audio and video recordings, newspapers, and artifacts.
Published materials (books, magazines, newspapers, etc.) in Special Collections can be found through the library catalog.
You can narrow your search results to display only Special Collections holdings by choosing Special Collections from the Location menu on the right side of the results screen.
Collections of unpublished manuscript or archival records are described in finding aids. For more information on finding aids and how to use them, see the Manuscripts tab in this guide.
