Special Collections

Talbott Library serves as a centralized location for both the Special Collections and the Westminster Archives. Special Collections houses rare books, scores, manuscripts, and other items of unique value; the Westminster Archives holds materials documenting the history of Westminster Choir College. Some of these collections date back to the founding of the school in 1926. Others have come to the library through the generosity of individual donors and the Talbott Library Friends. The Librarian for Special Collections seeks new collections that support Westminster's mission and fit into Talbott Library's Collection Development Policy.

Talbott’s Special Collections and Archives are open to on-site research during scheduled reference hours.
