Archives and Special Collections

An introduction to using materials in Davidson College's Archives and Special Collections.


To assist in research using archival and special collections materials, the Archives, Special Collections & Community team creates a variety of research guides for individual topics of interest and academic courses. On the following pages, research guides can be found according to topic and course. We also have guides that highlight materials located in the Smith Rare Book Room.
