Special Collections & Archives houses items unique to university history, the history of the Upper Snake River Valley, changes in recordkeeping, and related to specific areas of campus curriculum. Collections range from prehistoric artifacts demonstrating early writing to primary source documents detailing pioneer history in Rexburg to more modern electronic records created on campus.
