Welcome to Albion College Archives & Special Collections 

Over 180 years of records and artifacts document the history of Albion College. The College Archives and Special Collections, a department of Albion College Library, includes official institutional documents, personal papers of alumni and faculty, audiovisual collections, and rare books dating to the 15th century.

Albion College Library also holds the Archives of the (former) West Michigan Conference of the United Methodist Church, including official documents and minutes, as well as records of closed churches and retired clergy.

No special credentials or permissions are necessary to use our materials but, we do require all researchers to schedule an appointment for their visit. To request an appointment or ask a research question, please contact us. Also, please read our policies prior to visiting the archives.
