Description:

The Illinois History and Lincoln Collections is a unit of the Special Collections Division of the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign. By collecting, preserving, and providing access to print and manuscript materials documenting the history of Illinois and its inhabitants, including the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln, the IHLC serves to support research and learning in the areas of Illinois history and Lincoln studies.

Hours:

M-F, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Access

The reading room of the unit is located in Library 322. 

Printed materials in the collections are cataloged in the Library's online catalog.  These materials, which users may browse, are shelved in an adjacent section of the main stacks.

Manuscript collections are stored in the main stacks but are retrieved for research use in Library 322. The unit's manuscript holdings are listed, and partly described, in a searchable database.

Some collections are fully inventoried and entered into the current database. Other collections have been inventoried, in whole or in part; typescripts or printouts of those inventories are available upon request.

Scope

The collections contain approximately 25,000 volumes, 2,000 cubic feet of manuscripts, and a large number of maps, broadsides, prints and photographs, artifacts, and ephemera.  Researchers benefit substantially from the advice and suggestions of a staff which is familiar with these materials, with their inner connections, and with Illinois history and Lincoln studies as a whole.
