Special Collections Reading Room

In Special Collections and College Archives, we collect and preserve a wide variety of materials including books, pamphlets, maps, posters, sheet music, published materials, letters, diaries, scrapbooks, manuscript materials, photographs, oral histories, sound and video recordings, artifacts, and artwork. These materials are used to support the Gettysburg College community and beyond through research guidance, instruction, and collections management. In addition to the collections featured here, we care for Civil War Era primary sources such as artifacts, diaries, letters, documents, broadsides, and more.
