Collections & research
The Lewis Walpole Library seeks to be an active partner in the educational process at Yale and throughout the scholarly world. The Library acquires and makes available to researchers books and other printed texts, manuscripts, prints, drawings, paintings, and decorative arts in Farmington. In addition, the Library facilitates discovery of and access to selected collection materials remotely through Yale's library catalog, online collections, databases, podcasts, and a blog. The Fellowship and Travel Grant awards support study at the Library each year. The Library is open to researchers by appointment.
