    University Archives and Special Collections is located next door to the Jessie Ball duPont Library and the Police Department.  For a campus map, click here (we are building #61 on the map). 

    Park behind the library (the Georgia Avenue parking lot adjoining the fire hall). Use the walkway to the South (left if facing the library) of the library building. The left fork path will lead to the Archives and Special Collections entrance, which faces North towards the library building.
