University Archives and Special Collections at the University of the South supports the teaching and learning mission of the University by providing reference and duplication services, individual and group research consultations, course-specific instruction, exhibitions, and programming.
Whether you are conducting scholarly research, writing a paper, working on family history or simply curious about our collections, you are welcome to contact us to set up a visit or to request duplications of our materials. Please email email@example.com or call (931) 598-3212.
Since this department contains a closed-stacks library, most of our resources are located in secure areas and are only accessible in the Lytle Reading Room.
Instruction and Presentations
The staff of University Archives and Special Collections often partners with faculty to develop course-specific assignments and instruction using rare books, archival material, maps and other unique items held by the University. Classes are hosted in the Lytle Reading Room. Faculty who are interested in these services may contact us one week in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form linked below.
University Archives and Special Collections welcomes all users to do their research with us. However, the rare and sometimes fragile nature of our holdings necessitates the enforcement of some simple rules to ensure the protection of the materials.
