Archives and manuscripts are primary sources - historical records that provide detailed knowledge of the life of the era in which the material originated. The letters, diaries, reports, photographs, account books, maps and artifacts held in these collections provide raw materials that can be used to study, analyze, and interpret our history and culture.
Not all collections housed at the Five Colleges are represented on the site. More finding aids will be added as they are available, and the institutions continue to acquire new collections. More information about this project is also available.
