Special Collections & Archives Collections

The Disability Cultural Center (DCC) was established as one of UIC’s seven Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change in the Spring of 2018. Publications produced by the DCC, including their zine, Crip Wisdom, have been added to UIC's Special Collections & Archives.

Here is a finding aid for this collection.

Special Collections & Archives also includes the Adrian Scheltes collection, which contains photographs either taken by or collected by Scheltes while he was the Supervisor of Counsel and Guidance for the Blind from the Illinois Division of Vocational Rehabilitation in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
