Learn About Archives & Special Collections
The Davidson College Archives, Special Collections, & Community team collects and preserves the institutional records of the college, manuscript collections from the local community, rare books, music collections, and other special collections. 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 assistance. Through our work, our community engages critically with the past to understand our present and inform our future.
Questions about Davidson history, collaborating with our staff, using items from our collections, or donating materials to the Archives? Let us know!
Archives & Special Collections is open Monday-Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. by appointment only.
