The University Archives and the Deaf Collection combine to create a comprehensive and unique treasure. These collections contain virtually all published and many unpublished materials relating to the history and culture of deaf people around the world.

Specific titles are chosen by librarians who provide both general reference assistance and specialized instruction in specific subject areas. Staff members will gladly accept suggestions for additions to the collection.
