The Archives of the Museum includes historical documents, books, maps, ephemera, and photographic collections.   Contact print books of many of the photographs, arranged very generally by theme, are available for your use.  Staff can also search for photographs in our database by keyword.  We encourage patrons to utilize public libraries for browsing or general research.  If you cannot locate the book you seek elsewhere and if we have it in our collection, we will gladly work with you to make an appointment to use it.  If you are interested in using the Lyman Museum Archives and Research Collection please fill out the Research Request Form and the Archivist will contact you to confirm your appointment date and time.
