Archives and Special Collections documents Mount Holyoke College’s past and present through letters, diaries, rare books, scrapbooks, photographs, ephemera, and other types of unique material. Opened in November 1837, Mount Holyoke was one of the first institutions of higher education in the United States to offer female students coursework equivalent to that available to male college students, and the school is the first of the historic Seven Sisters Colleges. Archives and Special Collections is a rich and lively resource for women’s history and the history of women in higher education.

Archives and Special Collections’ digital collection includes select items that have been digitized from physical collections housed at Mount Holyoke.
