Special Collections and University Archives welcomes visitors and instruction requests

The Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) welcomes visits from classes, in person and virtual, and offers help with conducting research that utilizes the rare and unique materials held by SCUA. We ask for three weeks' notice to schedule a class visit. You can request instruction via our instruction request form or email us at archives@iastate.edu. Visit Special Collections and University Archives Instruction Services for more information 

Please note, there are class size limits (due to available space in our classroom) and scheduling depends on the archivist’s availability. 

We encourage instructors who are interested in general orientation vs. a primary source instruction session to visit our online guides that orient researchers to our department: 

These guides can be embedded in Canvas course pages. 

More information about SCUA can be found on our website.
