Welcome to Hagley Research & Collections


Hagley Museum and Library collects, preserves, and interprets the unfolding history of American enterprise. Hagley's collections document the interaction between business and the cultural, social, and political dimensions of our society from the late 18th century to the present. Our research collections are organized into four departments: Manuscripts and Archives Collections, Audiovisual Collections and Digital Initiatives, Published Collections, and Museum Collections.

To search our collections, please visit our search guide. If you have questions about using our collections, visit our researcher services page.

Hagley collections care is handled by our Conservation Departments in the Library and in the Museum.

Academic events and grant programs encouraging use of the collections are administered by the Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society.

Our staff is ready to assist you; we invite you to contact us at or call at 302-658-2400 ext 227.
