Welcome

Located on the 6th floor of Syracuse University's Bird Library, the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) advances scholarship and learning by collecting and preserving rare books, manuscripts, and other primary source materials. SCRC's collections span time and format, from cuneiform tablets to born digital electronic files. Collecting areas include activism and social reform, architecture and design, popular culture (cartoons, science fiction, and pulp literature), photography, and the history of recorded sound. SCRC is dedicated to connecting students, scholars, and the general public to its collections through exhibitions, lectures, and mini-seminars.
