Eury Appalachian Collection, Stock Car Racing Collection, University Archives and Records, and added the developing Rare Books and Manuscripts Collection. The core mission of Special Collections is to collect, preserve, and provide public access to primary and secondary source material in the above collecting areas. In addition, the unit promotes use of and education about collections through exhibits, instruction, public programming, and the World Wide Web. The collections and the activities of Special Collections support the teaching, learning, research, and scholarship of the Appalachian State University community, as well as the local, regional, national, and international research communities.
