The University Libraries Special Collections, which includes The Poetry Collection, University Archives, and Rare and Special Books, will reopen to the campus community on March 5.

Special Collections had been closed to the public for a months-long renovation to improve the environmental conditions of the closed stacks and provide the best protection for the valuable cultural and historical resources housed in the UB Libraries. The project also included installation of new seating and museum-quality exhibition cases.

Located in 420 Capen Hall, Special Collections’ regular hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Given the expected volume of visitors and research requests, patrons are encouraged to schedule an appointment with the Poetry Collection or Rare and Special Books at, and with University Archives at
