We are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of the John C. Wyatt Lexington Herald-Leader Collection and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) grant funded Herald-Leader Preservation and Access Project. Please visit the project website.
The mission of the Special Collections Research Center is to locate and preserve materials documenting the social, cultural, economic, and political history of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Materials are acquired regardless of format and include both primary and secondary sources; Kentuckiana is collected comprehensively. Special Collections maintains a records management programfor all records generated by the University and serves as its archival repository for permanent records. As part of the mission, the Special Collections Research Center advances and supports the research, teaching, and scholarship of the University and beyond by preserving and providing access to its holdings.
