Special Collections Research Center

Animal welfare and rights Collections

The Special Collections Research Center maintains an extensive animal rights/animal welfare archive. This collection, known as the Tom Regan Animal Rights Archive, was established in recognition of the contributions of Tom Regan, NCSU Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, a founder of the modern animal rights movement. In addition to Regan’s papers, the Research Center holds the papers of a number of animal rights and animal welfare individuals and organizations.

Dr. Regan’s personal library is contained in the Research Center’s Rare Book Collection and may be accessed by searching the library’s catalog. Animal rights and animal welfare books from other collections will be incorporated into the library’s general collections, and may be located through the library’s online catalog.
