Special Collections & Archives ♦ Goucher College Library ♦ 1021 Dulaney Valley Rd ♦ Baltimore, Md 21204

The Goucher College Special Collections and Archives (SC&A) includes the college archives, manuscripts and personal papers, rare book collections, artifacts, and digital collections. Students, faculty, and outside researchers are encouraged to explore our unique collections.
♦ Our collection reflects significant holdings in dance, women's studies, peace studies, and Baltimore history; our James Wilson Bright Collection is a rich resource on philology and early modern English books; and we are home to a world class Jane Austen Collection.

♦ The SC&A supports the college’s commitment to teaching and learning by creating student opportunities in evidence-based inquiry and primary source literacy.

♦ Some of our services include class instruction, individual research sessions, and reference services to  students, staff, faculty, alumnae/i, and the greater community.  SC&A provides a number of public programs annually including exhibits, lectures, events, as well as open houses and tours that highlight our holdings.  
 We have many opportunities for students to work in the SC&A. Students may also apply for research fellowships supported by the Brooke Peirce Center for Undergraduate Research in Special Collections.
