The John P. McDonald Reading Room is closed for the semester. Staff have limited onsite access to the collections and are supporting research inquiries, digitization of materials, and classes and instruction. You can learn more on our COVID page and staff are available to meet with researchers via email, phone, or virtually by appointment.
ASC’s digital archival collections and other resources can be accessed through the Connecticut Digital Archive. Guides to our manuscript and archival collections can be searched in our online database, ArchivesSearch, while published resources and rare books can be found by searching the Library Catalog.
Please reach out to us at any time for collection requests and all other questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-486-2524.
