Manuscripts and Unique Holdings

Many of the Shaw Center’s manuscripts and other unique materials are housed at Lied Library in UNLV’s Special Collections and Archives. Librarians at Special Collections can assist patrons with access and reproduction questions.

We are currently in the process of sorting and housing our very large collection. The list below shows both items that have been processed and available for immediate examination, as well as items that are awaiting processing. Click on a collection’s name for more information and finding aids.
