Works dealing with the history of the University of Tampa are kept in five places in the library:
Digital collections - UT's history is reflected in a digitized database of the Minaret (student newspaper), Moroccan (yearbook), UT Journal (alumni magazine) and Insighter (staff-faculty newsletter). This digital archive dates back to 1931 when UT was Tampa Junior College. The current four titles get updated every three years.
The Plant Museum collection focuses on the Plant Hotel before it became The University of Tampa, while the library's Special Collections focus on archival material since the inception of The University.
