About the Special Collections and Archives Research Center

The OSU Libraries Special Collections and Archives Research Center (SCARC) stimulates and enriches the research and teaching endeavors of Oregon State University through primary sources. As part of the University's land grant mission, SCARC makes these resources available to the OSU community, Oregonians, and the larger community of scholars and independent researchers. As the repository for and steward of the Libraries' rare and unique materials, we build distinctive and unique collections in our signature areas: natural resources, the history of science, university history, and Oregon's multicultural communities. These collections encompass manuscripts, archives, rare books, oral histories, photographs, ephemera, audio/visual materials, electronic and born digital records.

To achieve this mission, the Special Collections and Archives Research Center:

  • Provides unique opportunities for teaching and learning
  • Facilitates discovery through online access to SCARC collections
  • Provides responsive, personable, and expert public service
  • Assists communities in collecting, managing, preserving, and making their histories accessible
  • Promotes access to and preservation of SCARC collections by collaborating within the OSU Libraries, the University, and regional primary resource communities
  • Engages high achieving students through experiential learning opportunities
