Repository description (CRHP): This repository houses multiple oral history collections focusing on the history of Abilene and ASU as well as African Americans in the Church of Christ.
Repository description (extant): The Callie Faye Milliken Special Collections/Abilene Christian University Archives of the Margaret and Herman Brown Library include those materials that, because of subject coverage, rarity, source, condition, or form, are best handled separately from the Main Collection.
The shelves are not open for browsing; the closed-stacked facility has over 6,000 catalogued titles in 12 different collections, over 1,600 linear feet of manuscripts and archives, over 7,000 photographic images, over 13,000 audio and video recordings, and a great number of uncataloged materials and ephemera. Materials are retrieved by the staff for use in the Reading Room.
Repository type: University Special Collection
