The West Indiana and Special Collections Division aims to be a repository of international significance for research on West Indian-related topics. Its mission is to acquire, preserve and provide access to material emanating from the West Indies, produced by West Indians, and on the West Indies as well as on the West Indian diaspora. The Division serves students, faculty and staff of the University of the West Indies, as well as external researchers, both local and foreign.

The Division comprises two sections: a general section and the Special Collections. Collectively, they are a heritage collection and, as such, special guidelines apply for use. English is the primary language of the collection.
