The Eva G. Farris Special Collections and Schlachter University Archives acquires, describes, preserves and provides access to unique materials documenting the rich history of NKU and the Northern Kentucky-Greater Cincinnati region for the benefit of the university and the community.
Special Collections focuses on the history of the Northern Kentucky-Greater Cincinnati region (especially its social, business, education, and African American histories) as well as military history, politics and Appalachia. It also collects materials supporting programs of study at NKU.
University Archives documents the history of the people, events, activities and built environment associated with the University from its inception as a university extension center to the present.
University researchers and the general public are welcome during our drop-in research hours or by appointment. We are located in Steely Library room 106, near the fountain entrance.
