Artifacts of Tupac Shakur‘s personal manuscripts, song lyrics and video treatments are now available for viewing at the Atlanta University Center’s Robert W. Woodruff Library. The Tupac Amaru Shakur Collection was unveiled at the library on Tuesday (Sept. 13) to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the late rapper’s death.

The university teamed up with the Tupac Amura Shakur Foundation and members of the rap groups Dramacydal and the Outlawz to present a selection of written works spanning from 1969 to 2008 that also includes, letters to and from 2Pac, as well as publicity sheets, fan mail and media clippings. According to the school, the documents are to be used research purposes only.

In a statement, CEO and Library Director Loretta Parham says:

“We’re honored to have partnered with the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to preserve the artistic legacy of Tupac Shakur through this collection. He transformed the landscape of hip hop culture and was one of the most compelling voices and talents of his generation. As an academic library, we feel privileged to be the stewards of the Shakur Collection and to promote scholarly research of Shakur’s work.”
