SUNY Plattsburgh Special Collections focuses on the Northern New York State counties of Clinton, Essex, and Franklin; the Adirondacks; the Champlain Valley; and general materials on New York State. Information is available in a variety of formats, including monographs, periodicals, pamphlets and other ephemera, audio and video, photographs, maps, and manuscripts. Special Collections card catalogs index manuscript guides, pamphlets, local newspapers, and article-by-article indexing of periodicals relating to New York State. In addition to local history materials, Special Collections also contains the College Archives, the SUNY Plattsburgh thesis collection, rare books, and the Rockwell Kent Collection. Special Collections services include patron assistance (available during all hours that the collection is open), referral to other historical collections as needed, and individual and group orientation to the collection.
