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 promotes teaching and learning with the collections through exhibitions, class visits, research project support, internships, and public programs. The department, along with its program in Museum Studies, offers opportunities for the college community to engage actively and critically with primary resources and to conduct original research, supporting inter-disciplinary approaches that foster materiality study, visual literacy, and the preservation and discovery of diverse, non-traditional narratives.
