Rare and Manuscript Collections

By Appointment - Full Hours /

Using the HSC

Everyone is welcome to use these materials. Our ultimate purpose is to encourage research in this field.

You may contact us for remote reference assistance or visit the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections in person. More information on using our collections is available.

Our Sexuality Research Guide gives tips about how to approach a range of questions and research topics on sexuality and to clarify when and how Cornell’s Human Sexuality Collection may be of use to you.

The Curator would be glad to give an introductory tour of the Collection and to work with instructors who want their classes to do research here. If you are interested in using our collections or working with a Cornell archivist or librarian to introduce your students to primary research materials in the history of sexuality and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Studies.

Phil Zwickler Memorial Research Grants are now available.
