Special Collections and University Archives welcomes visitors and instruction requests.

Special Collections staff welcomes visits from classes and offers help with research needs that utilize the rare and unique materials held by SCUA. Archivists will work with instructors to develop class projects that incorporate SCUA resources and also teach students how to conduct primary source research. You can request instruction via our instruction request form.

More information about SCUA can be found on our website. Stop by and visit us on the 4th floor of the Parks Library (403 Parks) and check out our current exhibition, Activist Agriculture: Farm Protest in Iowa, 1929-1969, on display through January 2019.

This exhibition takes a closer look at mobilization of farmers to confront and obstruct tuberculosis testing of cattle during the Iowa Cow Wars of the early 1930s and the commodity holding actions of the National Farmers Organization in the 1960s.
