An archival collection is a set of papers generated by a person or organization over some period of time.
An archival collection can range from a few folders of material to hundreds of boxes.
A finding aid is the document describing the contents of an archival collection -- usually not every document, but folder by folder.
Search Special Collections finding aids. This interface works best if you type AND between each keyword in your search.
Most of our archival collections are stored off-site. Allow three days for the material to be retrieved. We can keep the retrieved material in the Main Library as long as you need it, or until the end of the semester, whichever comes first.
1) Look at the finding aid to determine what boxes you need.
3) Search for the collection title listed at the top of the finding aid.
4) Use the Request It! button to generate a request for the material.

Special Collections has many items published by Dudley Randall's Broadside Press.
If you're interested in a specific author, be sure to search them by name too. Broadside Press did not publish every poem by every author they worked with.
