The Clements Library houses original resources for the study of American history and culture from the 15th through the 19th century. Its mission is to collect and preserve primary-source materials, including rare books, pamphlets, maps, prints, photographs, and manuscripts, to make them available for research, and to create an environment that supports and encourages scholarly investigation of our nation’s past. The Library comprises four divisions: Books, Graphics, Manuscripts, and Maps, and is the former location of the Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive, now housed in the Special Collections Library.
