Repository description (CRHP): Collection strengths include Georgia politics, as found in the Georgia's Political Heritage Program oral history interviews.

Repository description (extant): The Annie Belle Weaver Special Collections serves as the repository for rare materials in the Irvine S. Ingram Library. Over the years Special Collections has built collections of manuscripts, books, films, photographs, sound recordings, and other formats in a number of specialized areas. These areas have been chosen with faculty and other specialists and in response to various opportunities to obtain primary research materials. Many of them continue to be focuses for targeted collecting and are profiled below.
Special Collections holds the University Archives in addition to the University Libraries' collections of rare and special books, manuscripts, and historical maps and photographs. Through these collections the department supports the research, teaching, and service mission of this university and its constituencies.
The collections are non-circulating and maintained in closed stacks. Security measures include limited access by staff and an electronic security system throughout the department. Exhibits from materials in Special Collections are created by the division and are rotated several times a year.
Acquisitions that do not fall into existing collecting areas sometimes are made in anticipation of new emphases. In addition to scholarly research value, staff may also take into account some items' exhibit and/or outreach potential.
