General Collections

If you are interested in obtaining loans or photocopies from the general collections of the Smith College Libraries, please consult the interlibrary loan service at your own academic, corporate, or public library. They can send an interlibrary loan request to the Smith College Libraries on your behalf. With few exceptions (see below), Smith does not provide such service directly to individuals.

Special Collections

If the material you seek is unique to Smith College and is housed in one of Smith's special collections, you may contact special collections directly:

College Archives

Mortimer Rare Book Room

Sophia Smith Collection
