About

The mission of the Kean University Archives and Special Collections is to preserve and make accessible Congressional papers, historical correspondence, institutional records and rare books that have been collected by or donated to the University. We want to encourage the use of world-class primary sources for research and scholarship by students and faculty alike. We strive to be a resource for exhibits, curriculum support, and continuous learning.  

The University Archives and Special Collections include a treasure trove of primary sources available to students, faculty and staff. Collections are stored on the Main Campus at the Nancy Thompson Library and at the Liberty Hall Campus in the Ice House. Both are accessible by appointment.
