Special Collections and Archives, in keeping with its mission and vision, contains selected local, family, and historical materials about the geographically contiguous areas of Washington County, the Arizona Strip, and the Big Muddy region of Nevada, as well as materials documenting the history of Dixie State University. The collection may contain materials or ephemera that are out-of-print; need special handling; or that may be irreplaceable, fragile, rare, etc. Special Collections materials may not be checked out and must be used under supervision in the Special Collections Reading Room.
