Welcome to the Reading Room!
This space is considered a secure area and will be locked at the time of your arrival. Because of the nature of our collections, our materials are not available to browse nor do they circulate, so all research must be done in the Reading Room. To ensure enduring access to these collections, Special Collections and College Archives offers some guidelines to assist you:
Special Collections and College Archives staff will be happy to assist you with your research. You can plan ahead for your visit by emailing us or giving us a call to discuss your interests. Some collections are stored off-site, so this will enable us to pull materials in advance and to prepare.
The Special Collections and College Archives are located on the fourth level of Musselman Library, on the Gettysburg College Campus. For more information on the library's location, please click through to the Directions and Parking page.
