Special Collections welcomes WCU students & classes!
Every year, students and classes use our vast collections to study primary sources in their field of study. Area high schools and civic groups are also welcome to visit us by appointment.
Faculty members wishing to bring their class for a visit, or for instruction, should contact Ron McColl directly at email@example.com or 610-436-3456.
Our materials DO NOT CIRCULATE and may only be used in the reading room. Books and archival materials in Special Collections may be old, fragile, and rare, so we ask that you follow a few simple guidelines when handling them:
We are happy to accept donations of materials which further our mission or supplement our collections. Items related to West Chester University history are particularly welcome. Keep in mind, however, that due to space restrictions we may not be able to accept all items. Additionally, we may recommend that particular items be donated to institutions with more complementary holdings.
