Archives & Manuscripts

Scholars, authors, museum professionals, artists, and students are invited to use the archives for a wide range of projects including books, bibliographies, films, and dissertations focusing on photography as well as cultural studies, environmental history, music, and many other areas.

Archives and manuscripts are accessed through the Laura Volkerding Study Center. For assistance with research questions about the Center’s collections, please contact Alexis Peregoy

Educators: please visit our Learn page for options about our photographic education opportunities and LENS initiative. 

Please note: 

In the interest of the health and welfare of our patrons, staff, faculty, and students, the Center will be closed effective immediately until further notice. This includes our galleries as well as our programs, events, and research spaces. We believe this is a responsible and ethical step, and while it is disappointing to cancel events, we look forward to coming together again as a community when the time is right.
