The Richard L. D. and Marjorie J. Morse Department of Special Collections acquires, preserves and provides access to a rich array of historic materials. More than one million items – manuscripts, rare and unique books, photographs – serve the diverse research needs of scholars, casual researchers and learning communities.

Located on the Fifth Floor of Hale Library, Special Collections serves as a vital epicenter for primary research at K-State.

Special Collections needs your help in saving, preserving, and promoting our collections. Your financial contribution of any amount plays a significant role in enhancing existing collections and developing innovative resources.
