The Special Collections & Archives department is comprised of three units: Special Collections, Palmer College Archives and the Digital Collection.
Special Collections are any types of material related to the Palmer Family and the Chiropractic Profession. Special Collections preserves and makes accessible its books, pamphlets, journals and manuscript collections for scholarly and historical research.
The Palmer College Archives is an official depository of the Palmer's inactive academic and business records. These materials document the growth and development of Palmer College. These materials are only accessible to the originating office and are not available to the general public.
The Digital Collection is a repository for online historical content that is available for patrons to access. We have been digitizing the yearbooks, important Palmer publications, photographs and there is much more to come! You can view what is already available online by clicking Digital Collections on the Special Collections & Archives Home page.
