The Special Collections Department manages the College’s extensive collections of rare books, manuscripts, art works, cultural artifacts, and the College’s archives in support of the overall College mission. Special Collections staff promote teaching and learning with the collections through exhibitions, class visits, research project support, internships, and public programs, regularly in close partnership with the College’s program in Museum Studies. The department offers opportunities for the college community to engage actively and critically with primary resources and to conduct original research. Special Collections supports disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approaches that foster materiality study, visual literacy, and the discovery of diverse, non-traditional narratives about and within the collections.
