Finding materials in Special Collections

To help you find materials in Special Collections, several useful tools have been developed and are described below. For most topics you will want to search in more than one place.

NOT ALL OF OUR MATERIALS ARE CATALOGED; please contact us for further assistance.

Library Catalog
Most of the printed material in Special Collections is accessible through the Library Catalog. Call numbers are preceded by WILB (Wilbur Collection) and RARE (Rare Book Collection).

Finding Aids
This database contains detailed finding aids for manuscripts, photographs, maps, ephemera, and clippings held by Special Collections, the University Archives, and the St. Johnsbury Archives Collaborative. Finding aids provide detailed descriptions of the content of each collection as well as the context in which the collection was created.

Center for Digital Initiatives
The Center for Digital Initiatives (CDI) makes unique digital collections available for researchers at UVM and beyond. The digital collections include photographs and other images, diaries, letters, documents, books and broadsides, and audio and video clips.

ArcCat is a cooperative catalog describing archival and manuscript collections held by various Vermont institutions, including Special Collections.
