How do I access the New School Archives and Special Collections, including the Kellen Design Archives?

This guide explains everything researchers need to know about accessing the New School Archives and Special Collections.

Planning Ahead

For more information about what to expect during a visit to the New School Archives and how you can prepare in advance to get the most out of your research, read our Introduction to Archival Research guide's Basic Tips page.

Resource Guides

The staff of the Kellen Design Archives has prepared two topical guides to the Archives' collections, Fashion Design and Interior Design. These guides will give you a sense of the types of available archival materials and their creators' professional work.

We are also continually updating and posting images of work from our collections on our website and on our Digital Collections site. If you see something on either of the sites that interests you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
