Using this research guide

west

The following guide is intended to provide an overview of the sources for study of the American West in the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) of Emory University. It is not intended to be exhaustive. Rather, it is intended to provide researchers with a good idea of the type and scope of material that may be found in MARBL. The guide should be seen as a supplement to the other finding aids, namely the online catalog (EUCLID) and manuscript collection descriptions. The guide only includes sources in MARBL.

To supplement this guide, you may wish to search our catalogs to locate additional materials:

Find Manuscripts and Archives
This database searches detailed descriptions of manuscript collections, which are called finding aids. Finding aids generally include a description of the collection's creator and contents and a box and folder list. The database includes finding aids for unprocessed collections.

Find Books and More
The Emory Libraries Catalog contains records for the majority of materials held in MARBL and the other university libraries, including rare books, manuscript collections and archives, microforms, and audiovisual materials.

Please note that not all manuscript collections are housed in MARBL. Some collections are located at an off-site storage facility and must be requested in advance. In addition, some collections have access restrictions. Researchers are encouraged to contact MARBL to insure that materials will be available. We are also happy to pull materials in advance of a research visit.

Revised editions of this guide will be forthcoming as new collections are accessioned and as material in existing collections is located and identified.
