The Dietel Library provides girls with access to tools that will aid and enhance their learning, including databases, ebooks, research guides, and our own rich archive collection. Located in the heart of campus, the library is a quiet space where girls are often found studying intently in a cozy yogibo, or working collaboratively with peers on research projects.

In addition to always being willing to support students as they find a good book or seek out critical resources for their coursework, Emma’s Director of Library Resources and Research, Caroline Buinicky, also work with teachers to provide their classes with regular, mini research lessons.

    The Archive collects materials relating to Emma Willard School (formerly Troy Female Seminary), including archival records from the school and private records of faculty, staff, and students. Holdings include manuscripts, textbooks, and publications of Madame Emma Hart Willard dating from 1817. The collection also includes a large number of photographs, videotapes, audio recordings, and ephemera from the school. Also included are school records and catalogs; student records, letters, diaries, and notebooks; curriculum materials, and records from administrative offices, all dating from 1814 to the present.

    The Archive is pleased to accept donations of items relating to the establishment, development, growth, and activities of Emma Willard School. Please contact Archivist Nancy Iannucci when contemplating such a donation.
