Welcome to MIT ArchivesSpace

This site is your discovery portal for archival and other unique materials at MIT, particularly for those in the Department of Distinctive Collections. Here you will find descriptions of our primary sources including papers, correspondence, photographs, film and video, print items, digital materials, objects, and more.

To use the materials described in these finding aids, please contact us with the collection name, box number(s) and the date/s you would like to visit. Our collections do not circulate and must be used onsite in our reading room in 14N-118. In most cases our collections are stored off-site and require advance notice for retrieval; please plan to contact us two business days in advance to make arrangements for your visit.

We are happy to answer your questions or provide assistance for your search; please let us know if we can be helpful.
