Summary
The University of Missouri Collection is comprised of publications emanating from the University of Missouri System and the Columbia campus administrative and academic offices. These publications include printed and/or published books, newsletters, yearbooks, catalogs, directories, pamphlets, manuals, newspapers, and documents. Manuscript materials are not included. Works by faculty members published off campus are accepted as gifts and purchased as funds are available. This collection is complemented by University of Missouri material in University Archives. While there is some duplication of material, the University of Missouri Collection (SPEC-M) Collection focuses on published material, while University Archives is the depository of official records of the University of Missouri at Columbia as well as of the administrative records of the University of Missouri System. The University Archives also houses and preserves private papers, organizational records, and manuscripts that relate to the history of the University and the University System

Ownership
From its inception, the Libraries have collected University publications. In 1953-54 an attempt was made to create as complete a collection as possible of every item published by University students, faculty, and staff. The materials were classified according to a special scheme, placed in the Language Reading Room and named the M Collection. When the Libraries converted its collection to the Library of Congress classification scheme, M Collection classification designations conflicted and thus became confusing. The collection was reclassified to Library of Congress and given a SPEC-M location prefix. SPEC-M was one of the collections comprising the Special Materials Department (now Special Collections) when it was formed in 1960-61.
