The Michael J. Spinelli Jr. Center for University Archives and Special Collections is located on the upper level of the Herbert H. Lamson Library at Plymouth State University. The Spinelli Room (212) is open by appointment only.
The books in the Spinelli Room are cataloged and can be found in Lamson’s online catalog. Some archival material is available online through our digital collections, but much of the material comprising the Special Collections and University Archives is not yet findable online, but in consultation with Archives staff.
Material in Archives cannot be checked out and must be used in the Spinelli Room under the supervision of staff. This is one reason that appointments must be made ahead of time, so that we can retrieve material and bring it to the Spinelli Room.
Visitors to the Spinelli Room will be asked to leave bags and outerwear at the door. Pencils only may be used and will be provided. No food or drink is allowed.
If you have questions about the collections, please use the Archives Request Form. If you would like to make an appointment to use the archives/special collections, please use the Archives Appointment Form.
