Welcome to the Archives and Special Collections of Thomas Jefferson University

The goals of the Archives are:

  • to acquire and preserve the permanent, non-current records of the University, as well as collections of historical material donated by faculty, staff, and alumni; and
  • to make these materials available to qualified researchers for research.

The Department's primary mission is to serve Thomas Jefferson University students, faculty, staff and affiliates. However, outside researchers are welcome to visit the Archives. Our staff is available to assist you by appointment, Monday through Friday (closed weekends and holidays). Before your visit, please become familiar with the use policies outlined in this section.

Non-university patrons who are unable to visit the Archives & Special Collections in person may request staff to perform research.

We look forward to working with you.
