Archives Reference and Research Submission Form

The Institute Archives and Special Collections serves Rensselaer students, faculty, staff, and alumni as well as other researchers interested in conducting research with the unique materials housed within the Institute Archives and Special Collections.

  • Please note that due to Rensselaer's Bicentennial celebration in 2024, we are prioritizing research to fulfill the needs of the Rensselaer Community. Due to increased demand, we cannot predict how long it will take to respond to non-RPI-affiliated researchers.
