The mission of The Cooper Union Archives & Special Collections is to support teaching, research, administration, and service through the management of information resources created by, for, or about The Cooper Union and the Cooper Union community. For more information about what archives are and how they can be used, see our page on Understanding Archives.
Our collections include a wide variety of manuscripts, objects, publications, audio and film reels, and photographs that document the development of The Cooper Union, as well as the continued contributions and achievements of our founders, faculty and alumni.
Some of these materials can be viewed online via The Internet Archive or the Voices From the Great Hall website. The bulk of our material remains undigitized, but is accessible to view in person. Find further information about the Archives via the following links:
