Special collections

Special collections are materials in all formats that are intended for permanent preservation because of their uniqueness, rarity or monetary value. Special Collections in the General Library is the largest repository of special collections on campus, and includes the Western Pacific Archives and extensive print collections of New Zealand and Pacific material. This is complemented by significant archives and manuscript material in other libraries. These collections come under the Cultural Collections umbrella.
