Boston Public Library Archival and Manuscript Finding Aid Database

Closure Notice: Boston Public Library archival collections are currently closed to in-person research due to the renovation of the Special Collections Reading Room as part of the Rare Books Renovation Project. You can learn more about this major renovation and the important improvements being made to collection and public spaces here. We look forward to welcoming researchers back into these newly renovated spaces in late 2021.

Some limited remote reference services are available; please contact our archives team with questions.
