The Library's Special Collections complement the resources of the general Library collections. They are acquired and maintained in support of the University's curriculum with emphasis on the natural resources, Native peoples, and primary industries of Northwestern California, including the history of Humboldt State University. Access to the collections is provided primarily through the Library's catalog and this webpage. Materials are available for use in the Humboldt Room by HSU students, faculty, and staff as well as visiting scholars and the general public.
There are many ways to get in contact with a HSU Librarian.
Chat online with a librarian for 24/7 reference for students, staff, and faculty. This is a nationwide cooperative effort to provide remote Librarian access.
