The Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections is currently closed due to upcoming renovations in the Archives and Special Collections and current renovations in Snell Library. During this period of closure collections will be inaccessible and reference services will be limited to remote correspondence consulting digitized material.

Any requests for scans or access to our collections made during our period of closure will be entered into a queue for completion upon reopening. We recognize that some requests may have urgency or sensitive timelines and will do our best to work with you to set expectations about what is possible as we continue to learn more about the upcoming renovation. These requests can be sent to [email protected].

The Teaching with Archives Program will continue to offer instruction however will be exclusively using digitized collections. Please email Reference and Outreach Archivist, Molly Brown, for more information at [email protected].

We recognize that limited access to collections can be frustrating and difficult to navigate. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to celebrating a newly renovated Archives and Special Collections with you upon reopening.
