Research guides at The Huntington homepage

Thank you for your interest in the Huntington Library.  We are an independent research center for the humanities that welcomes researchers from all over the world. The library holds more than 11 million items that span the 11th to 21st centuries. We invite you to explore our growing collection of research guides. Questions about the resources listed in these guides can be directed to the library.

The library will be closed to all readers and fellows until further notice. See: The Huntington Responds to COVID-19. Information about online resources and virtual library services available to researchers during library closure can be found on our Library at Home guide.
