Penrose Library has many different types of materials in addition to books, DVDs, and microforms held in our regular circulating collections. We also have broad variety of rare and unique items held in our Special Collections and Archives. These items include books, newspaper clippings, photographs, posters, DU meeting minutes and historical documents, even hats!
You may come across items that list Special Collections as their location while searching the library’s online catalog or you can search the library’s Special Collections and other unique materials using Digital DU (http://digitaldu.coalliance.org/), the University of Denver’s digital repository. Digital DU provides a deep, full-text search of many archival collections, including digital access to historical photographs, text, audio, and video.
