Manuscripts generally consist of unpublished "primary source" material comprised of historical and literary collections of personal papers. These include diaries, journals, letters, notebooks, typescripts and manuscripts.
Other manuscript collections encompass corporate records, political, cultural, and economic archives, oral histories, handwritten maps and graphic material, and miscellaneous papers. The Manuscripts Collections also contain primary source material in 20th century music. Visit the manuscripts area for more information.
