Connect | Schlesinger Library || Radcliffe Institute

The Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America is a special collections library at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute that offers access to uniquely illuminating documentary resources representing the long span of American history, from the beginnings of the United States to the present day. When students connect directly with the library’s materials—such as letters, diaries, newspapers, manuscripts, and oral histories—they gain hands-on research skills, a deeper understanding of history, and a chance to create new knowledge of our shared past. In this video, Harvard students and faculty members convey the educational value of using archival materials for learning and teaching.
