Special Collections

WPI Archives and Special Collections: Physical and Digital Collections

The resources of Worcester Polytechnic Institute's Archives and Special Collections consist of both physical materials (such as printed books, manuscripts, artifacts, and microforms) and digitized collections. Many of the physical collections have finding aids that describe and list the contents of the particular collection.

Among the Archives and Special Collections

Digitized portions of the Robert Fellman Charles Dickens Collection, the Woodbury and Company Collection, and the Theo Brown Diaries Collection are also available.


The collections are not digitized in their entirety, so if you are searching for a resource and can't find it, please ask us for help. We will attempt to find what you're searching for or direct you to another helpful resource.
