Hofstra University - Hofstra University Library


The Hofstra University Special Collections Department is made up of three areas: the University Archives, the Rare Books and Manuscripts Division, and the Long Island Studies Institute. In an effort to increase access to materials from these areas (while being ever mindful of their preservation needs), the Special Collections Department is currently working on digitizing a number of unique and interesting collections. We hope that you enjoy these collections and that they inspire you to come and visit us and allow us to assist you with your research needs.

Please call (516) 463-6411, or e-mail us at LISI@hofstra.edu. If you would like to come and visit us, we are located in Rm. 032 in the lower level of Axinn Library.
