Reader in the reading roomLibrarians at the American Antiquarian Society have been working since 1812 to acquire materials important for the study of American history. Because many of these materials are fragile and irreplaceable, we have established policies and procedures to ensure that they will be available for scholarly research for future generations.

Researchers can determine if AAS has material relevant to their project by searching the general catalog or by contacting the appropriate staff member.

Further questions regarding using the library may be directed to Kimberly Toney, Head of Readers' Services, at 508-471-2171 or via e-mail at
