Special Collections at Smith College collects and makes available original material related to the history of women, history of the College, and across many subjects in our rare books. Students participating in History Day projects should first explore their topics first through secondary sources. We encourage students to contact staff to identify possible primary source materials to use in their projects. Though Special Collections is part of the Libraries, we do operate a little differently. Visitors are encouraged to become familiar with our Visiting Special Collections guidelines. Information about our collections, including digital resources is available.
