About Archives & Special Collections

Welcome to Archives & Special Collections!  We offer access to unique and rare materials in order to support the teaching and research needs of the Elon University community and general public.  Our holdings include institutional materials, faculty and personal papers, church history collections as well as information on the Town of Elon and surrounding communities. Within the collections you can find various types of items including printed and photographic materials, video/audio, artifacts, and other memorabilia.

Archives & Special Collection items are non-circulating and are available for use in our reading room during our normal business hours or by appointment.
