Greenslade Special Collections and Archives: For Faculty

The Greenslade Special Collections and Archives houses Kenyon's rare books, literary manuscripts, photographs, newspapers, and College archives.

Hours & Contact

Due to the limitations of our temporary home, visits to Special Collections & Archives are by Appointment Only.

Appointments can be scheduled using the request form on the Home page.


Phone: (740) 427-5668

Schedule a Class Visit

Special Collections and Archives will still be able to host classes in our classroom in Library Building C. Students can interact with primary sources and historical artifacts. All class meeting times can be accommodated with proper notification.

Prior to a scheduled visit, faculty are required to meet with SC&A staff to discuss the format of the class session, the materials to be exhibited, and any additional preparatory information.

To schedule a class session, please fill out the request form on our Home page, email, or call (740)427-5996.

Student Projects

In addition to class visits, faculty may assign their students projects requiring research in the Special Collections and Archives. We encourage you to pursue this option, be it as a mandatory part of your course or for extra credit. Not only do students benefit from handling and studying primary sources more closely, independent projects help them develop their research and library skills.
