Discover Special Collections & Archives

Who are we?

The Special Collections and Archives division of Coates Library collects, organizes, preserves, and makes available rare books, manuscripts, other special collections, and archival material to the Trinity community and researchers at large.

We are responsible for documenting the history of Trinity University, and we play a central role in managing institutional records.
