Archivists and librarians at CSUN have been building primary and archival research collections for several decades to help students and other researchers discover and analyze critical information about our collective past. On display in the gallery are items selected from all parts of the holdings in Special Collections and Archives. Rather than leading viewers through an exploration of a particular subject, time period, or theme, the selected items should prompt visitors to consider the strengths and weaknesses of primary and archival sources as research tools.
