Manuscript Collections

The BPCL's manuscript collections support and complement existing print collections in the areas of popular fiction, popular entertainment, and the graphic arts. Many of our manuscripts also document the history of popular culture and pioneers in the field.

All manuscripts are in off-site stacks and require 24-hour notice during normal business hours for retrieval. Please contact us before visiting for information on accessibility of the materials you need.

To assist researchers with special interests, we have compiled a list of our holdings by subject areas. Finding aids will be linked through these lists as they become available.
