Special Collections Research Center
The SCRC is the principal repository for and steward of the Libraries’ rare books, manuscripts, archives and University records. We collect, preserve, and make accessible primary resources and rare or unique materials, to stimulate, enrich, and support research, teaching, learning, and administration at Temple University. SCRC makes these resources available to the Temple community and a broad constituency as part of the University's engagement with the larger community of scholars and independent researchers.
While we are constantly striving to increase the discoverability of our materials, this website only covers a small portion of our actual collections and holdings--which is over 90,000 linear feet, many terabytes, and growing. If you don't find what you are looking for on our website, we encourage you to visit, call or e-mail us.
