The Special Collections and Archives Department has been a consistent resource of information on the events and aftermath of May 4, 1970, housing more than 300 cubic feet of May 4 materials that have been used for documentaries, projects, academic lessons, exhibits and more. The 50th anniversary of this significant milestone will take place in 2020.
