Special Collections

The Special Collections Department works to preserve the heritage of Gonzaga University, the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus and the surrounding region, and to make its historical resources readily available for inspection, evaluation, and research. 

The Department supports the mission and goals of Gonzaga University, in particular by promoting students' use and appreciation of rare books and primary sources like historical  photographs and manuscripts collections.
