Milliken Special Collections and ACU Archives

Abilene Christian University’s Milliken Special Collections and Archives is located on the lower level of the Margaret and Herman Brown Library. It includes those materials that, because of subject coverage, rarity, source, condition, or form, are best handled separately from the Main Collection. These items are in closed stacks, and all materials must be retrieved by the Special Collections staff and must remain in the reading room while being used. 

Please contact any of our staff to schedule a time during our operating hours to view items from our collection. Also, feel free to send our staff any questions you might have about our holdings and collections.
