The public treasures found in Special Collections and Archives take the form of several million items including letters, diaries, and ledgers; vintage and contemporary photographs; oral history interviews; films; and maps." (from the NAU Cline Library website)  All items are part of the Arizona Memory Project.  Included in this collection are family histories of pioneers who settled in northern Arizona.

Volunteer at the Center

The center welcomes volunteers from the community to gather and index obituaries for our area.  We also need people to visit our local cemeteries and upload pictures and information for the cemetery project. Volunteers can be used to work in the center to help patrons with their research needs.  We could use those who can read and speak Spanish or have expertise in Native American research for our area.
