We are pleased to announce two new channels which will offer a window into some of our most treasured collections along with the work of the dedicated individuals who preserve and promote these invaluable resources.

The Special Collections and University Archives Instagram (@rutgers_scua) will feature pictures from the unique holdings of the Sinclair New Jersey, Manuscripts, Rare Books, and University Archives Collections, as well as behind the scenes images of the Conservation Lab and exhibit preparation. 

Additionally, a blog entitled What Exit? will provide the latest news and information about acquisitions, holdings, events, and all manner of New Jerseyana in the Sinclair New Jersey Collection.  Everything from state, county, and municipal history, genealogy, literature, technology, and education will be covered.

Stay tuned to both sites throughout the year for lots of exciting content!
