Special Collections advances the mission of Williams College by engaging with teaching, research, and creative work. The College Archives documents the widest possible range of experiences that make up the history of Williams. The Chapin Library collects, preserves, and provides access to books, manuscripts, and other materials that support the Williams liberal arts curriculum.
Researchers may use our material in the Special Collections reading room on the 4th floor of Sawyer Library. We welcome you to visit during our open hours, or to arrange a visit by contacting [email protected].
