Special Collections department at the Library serves as the repository of materials that support research and documentation on the Stevens family, the Stevens Institute of Technology, and the history of Hoboken. In addition, we are building our scope of collections to encompass the history of New Jersey, the American industrial revolution, history of science and invention, and transportation history, especially railroads and nautical designs. We support research for a wide range of scholars including undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and other researchers whose work relies on primary resource materials, including rare books, manuscripts, media, and archives.
