We are excited about our move to the new Tompkins Center for History and Culture in early 2019.
In order to better prepare, we are closing our Research Library from October 1st, 2018 until our grand opening in March 2019.
The John Marcham Research Library is a place for discovery about Tompkins County's past. The History Center’s research library serves casual browsers and scholars, school children, local historians, genealogists, and professional researchers. Along with providing access to diverse archival materials on local history and culture, The History Center is equipped to make professional quality photographic copy prints and scans of photographs from our extensive photo collections. Researchers are also allowed to use digital cameras without flash, for a fee, at the discretion of the archivist.
Review The History Center's Guide to Research Services for more detail.
Additional local history materials, including microfilm, books and research assistance are available at the Tompkins County Public Library or ONLINE!
