The Samuel C. Williams Library is pleased to announce the launch of a new digital collections portal for Archives & Special Collections content.
The website serves as a useful gateway to over 3,000 digitized items including photographs, manuscripts, exhibitions, audio-visual content, Stevens master’s theses and dissertations, and other rare and unique materials from the Archives & Special Collections. Highlights include The Frederick Winslow Taylor Collection, comprising original documentation related to Taylor’s development of scientific management; The Stute student newspaper collection spanning 1904 to 2009; the Voices from Castle Point oral history project; and many more!
“While the Library staff has been working remotely,” says Linda Beninghove, Director of the Samuel C. Williams Library, “we have pivoted library services, resources, and programming to complement largely an online audience.” She adds, “For many years, these items have been available only to in-person researchers, so we saw this as the perfect opportunity to broaden the reach of our archival collections and continue to play an important role in showcasing the depth of Stevens history for this year’s 150th anniversary celebration.”

Archives & Special Collections staff is committed to expanding its digital offerings and will continue to add new content to the site over time. If you have questions or would like to know more about Archives & Special Collections, please contact us:
