The Salem State University Archives and Special Collections will continue to primarily assist researchers remotely.

While in-person research may be limited or suspended due to health and safety protocols
our collections are still very much accessible!

The SSU Archives Flickr page now has more than 5,500 high-resolution images!
From photographs to restaurant menus, this page is a great resource for visuals and ephemera
related to the history of Salem and Salem State.

Looking for books, maps, or yearbooks?
Check out our Digital Commons page for hundreds of digitized items.

Not sure where to start?
