Special Collections include materials which for reasons of rarity or fragility, format, or association with the University or local community, have been separated from the Main Collection.
Special Collections are on the 6th floor of the Lemieux Library & McGoldrick Learning Commons. All books are accessible through the online catalog.
The library contributed finding aids for selected materials including the E.M. Standing Collection of Maria Montessori and the Seattle University History Collection. From this link to the Northwest Digital Archive website http://nwda.orbiscascade.org/ use the "Advanced Search" to narrow the "institutions" specifically to "Seattle University."
Access to Special Collections is by appointment only. Requests may be made to the Coordinator for Collection Development, Special Collections either by email or telephone and by completing the online request form .
