The libraries hold various archives produced by scientists, scholars and other institutions. The material is heterogeneous due to the variety of its sources: letters, drawings, photographs, journals, manuscripts, maps, etc. To learn about the history of the archives see: Storia delle biblioteche dell'Università di Firenze (in Italian)
These archives are described in detail in the portal Chartae; the description is still in progress.
