Buswell Library Special Collections

In order to prioritize the health and safety of our visitors and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, Buswell Library Special Collections is closed through the summer. These measures are in alignment with the guidelines of Wheaton College and the regulations of the State of Illinois. We anticipate welcoming researchers back via scheduled appointments after the beginning of the Wheaton College fall academic term with safety protocols in place. More details on research visit scheduling will be forthcoming.
In the meantime reference staff and limited services will continue to be available. Please contact Special Collections staff at special.collections@wheaton.edu with any questions, and review our website for access to our catalog and collection descriptions.  
Announcements and more information about Wheaton College’s planning around the COVID-19 virus are available. We apologize to our visitors for this inconvenience, and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Special Collections collects materials of noted adherents to the Christian faith, particularly those who have a significant relationship with Wheaton College and/or evangelical Christianity. The College Archives, the preeminent collection within Special Collections, documents the history of Wheaton College, and its predecessor, the Illinois Institute.
