Hagley Museum and Library collects, preserves, and interprets the unfolding history of American enterprise. Hagley’s collections document the interaction between business and the cultural, social, and political dimensions of our society from the late 18th century to the present.
The library is organized into six departments: Manuscripts and Archives, Pictorial Collections, Imprints, Digital Archives, Conservation, and the Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society.
Current holdings comprise 34,000 linear feet in the Manuscripts and Archives Department, 2 million visual items in the Pictorial Collections Department, and 280,000 printed volumes in the Imprints Department. The Center sponsors conferences and seminars and manages a research grant program.
