Archives and Special Collections
Our University Archives and Special Collections are distinct and valuable collections. University Archives collect and maintain records relating to Deakin University. This includes records on Deakin's people, groups, predecessor institutions and societies. Our Special Collections contain research items which need special care. This includes historic, rare or fragile items that are valuable both as objects and for research.
