Plan Your Visit

Please stop by during our open hours to visit our browsing collection and research our historic materials. We urge you to call ahead at 617-349-7757 to ensure a successful visit and to confirm the archivist’s availability.

The Cambridge Room’s materials are historically valuable and unavailable elsewhere. All materials are non-circulating and can only be used in the Cambridge Room. We require visitors to complete a Registration Form and store their bags and outerwear in one of the lockers provided. Food, drink, and pens are not allowed in the Cambridge Room – an accidental spill or slip can permanently damage materials. We also ask that users handle all materials with care. For more information, please read our Research Policies.
