Natural History of the Berkshires -- Manuscripts and archives
Research hint #1: Most of the Archives' manuscripts and archival collections are inaccessible in the Library Shelving Facility. This limits work with primary sources.
Research hint #2: Make sure to ask the Archives' staff about our vertical files. These are folders of disparate collected articles, essays, etc. on college buildings, events, etc.
Research hint #3: The Archives administers files on deceased alumni and former faculty. If the owner of your site was associated with Williams, request their biographical file from the Archives' staff.
Research hint #4: Records of college land holdings may appear in archival records: the minutes of the Board of Trustees, college deeds, etc. Again, confer with the Archives' staff about following up on these leads.
