University of Southern California, Special Collections

The Special Collections department provides access to and preserves archival, historic, and primary source materials in its main areas of strength: Los Angeles regional history; American literature; Lion Feuchtwanger and the German émigré experience; natural history; Iberian, Latin American, and U.S. Hispanics studies, and USC history and the university’s intellectual life. Our quarters provide an area where students, faculty, and their classes may pursue intellectual exchange and quiet discovery of the library’s rare and other non-circulating materials.
