Yes! Smith College Special Collections is a public repository.

  • All are welcome to explore the resources, materials, and collections we steward.
  • Any researcher is welcome to come to Special Collections during our open hours to speak with a reference desk staff person about their research interests, projects, and questions.
  • The collections are also discoverable through our many databases and collection lists. Most of our collections are described on the web, in both the Five College Library catalog and in our online finding aid.
  • Special Collections also has a growing collection of digitized images relating to women's history dating from the early nineteenth century to the present. You can find some of these images on the Five College Compass website.
