New Reading Room and Classroom for Archives and Special Collections

Exciting news here in the Archives!  New reading room, new classroom, new website, and a new system for providing online access to our finding guides.  

First, we welcome you to our beautiful new reading room and teaching classroom. We are back on Mudd Center’s 4th floor after a summer of serving researchers in a temporary room on the 2nd floor. For the first time Archives and Special Collections have a teaching classroom, equipped with a ceiling camera and large monitor for demonstrating archival and special collections materials to groups of students, faculty and visitors. 

Second, we hope you like our new website modeled on the Library-wide new website. Some of our pages are still under construction and if you have trouble finding something, please contact us.

Third, we are in the process of moving over 600 finding guides to our collections into a new system for online access. Right now we have about 95 guides in the new system, linked on our website. Again, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please contact us!
