The Special Collections Research Library and Archive, known as SCRLA, offers 5 centuries of primary source documents to make your research projects stand out. Located in the Liberty Hall Academic Center, on the stunning historic site of New Jersey’s first elected Governor, William Livingston, the research experience offers access to digital materials and one-on-one support from our SCRLA Associates on New Jersey and global topics.

SCRLA advocates for using world-class primary sources for research and scholarship, exhibitions, curriculum support, and continuous learning. Documents are added frequently, and in-person visits are welcomed. Groups larger than 10 people require 3 weeks' notice to ensure availability and coverage.
