Welcome to Archives, Special Collections & Community at Davidson College! Our team helps preserve the institutional records of the college, manuscript collections from the local community, and rare books and special collections materials. We provide students, faculty, staff, and community members with opportunities for original research, inquiry-driven study, and object-inspired learning through instruction sessions and reference support. Through our work, our community engages critically with the past to understand our present and inform our future. For more information about our department and our collections, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters and Summer 2021, Archives, Special Collections & Community staff are primarily working remotely. We are continuing to support the research and instructional needs of Davidson's students, faculty, and staff as much as possible with reduced access to our physical collections.
All services will be by appointment only. In-person access to materials will be considered on a case-by-case basis and provided only when absolutely necessary, with appropriate social distancing and wearing of masks or face coverings (if not vaccinated).
