OPUS extends the availability of these collections to students, scholars and the interested public holding a keen desire to utilize them to conduct contemporary research. OPUS also facilitates research in these fields and fosters the dissemination of scholarly work into the culture-at-large, including social and environmental entrepreneurs who are active in the contemporary issues of society.Among the exceptional holdings of OPUS Archives and Research Center is the Joseph Campbell collection including personal artifacts, art, memorabilia and his personal library. OPUS also holds the  Marija Gimbutas collection including lectures, slides, and extensive texts on the subjects of history, archaeology and the humanities.
