Welcome to the Hampden-Sydney College Archives & Special Collections' Digital Repository!
H-SC Archives staff are working hard to make digital scans of our most unique primary source material and archival items available on this platform. In the future, born-digital items such as pertinent email correspondence, oral history recordings, and research data may be stored here as well.
There are a variety of ways to access material on this site. Researchers may look for individual scans or digital files, known as Items, by clicking the "Search All Digital Files" option in the menu to the left. All items are searchable by title, as well as by tags and a variety of metadata fields.
Certain items have been added to the site as a result of being digitized as a collection or exhibition. Collections contain related items gathered together with little to no textual interpretation. Exhibits, on the other hand, are similar to what one might find in a museum or cultural heritage center, and are frequently curated. Exhibits offer researched historical interpretation, often performed by library faculty, public history faculty, or museum staff.
