Finding Aids

You can use our finding aids to build a list of materials that you would like to consult when scheduling a research appointment. Please take note of the collection name, folder title, and date for each file that you would like to use, and email this information, along with your research appointment request to our Reference department.

To make an appointment, please review the access policy and submit a request to visit. For more information, email our Reference department or call 215.278.7280.

The Barnes Foundation Archives is beginning a major digitization project that requires the temporary closing of the Albert C. Barnes Correspondence. The collection will not be accessible to on-site researchers from December 2021 through August 2022. We will do our best to continue to deliver reference electronically, but will be limited as to what we can provide. We appreciate your understanding and patience. Please continue to check this website for updates.
