Fall 2022

  • The Reading Room will be open for general appointments, Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Consultations with staff will also be available via Zoom or Google Meet. Please contact us directly with any research questions, concerns, or comments at archives@lafayette.edu.
  • We are excited to welcome Lafayette classes back for Fall 2022, and look forward to helping students achieve hands-on experience with archival records, rare printed materials, manuscripts, photographs, and other media held across Special Collections & College Archives.
  • To start planning an instruction session with Special Collections & College Archives staff, please submit an instruction request. After we've received your request, we'll connect you with a librarian or archivist who can work to support the instruction session and provide material for the focus of your course's subject matter and learning objectives. Ideally, we will be in contact at least two weeks' prior to the scheduled the class visit to ensure appropriate materials are prepared and adequate meeting space available.

    Queer Archives Project Digital Humanities Site

    Newly Launched in April 2019!

    The QAP digital humanities project is a timeline-based Scalar site shaped around the dynamic interface among oral history interviews, related archival materials and emergent scholarship and research. Structured through themes generated by the oral histories, the digital humanities project offers an innovative, multi-dimensional platform from which to learn about Queer history, conduct scholarship, and share research. Lafayette students are working side by side with faculty, digital scholarship services specialists and archivists to conceptualize, develop and create the site.

    Welcome: Queer Past, Queer Futures...
