The W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library’s historical manuscripts collection consists of over 3500 collections (and growing!) of historical and literary manuscripts.
These collections reflect the history and culture of Alabama and the Southeast from the colonial period to the present.
A limited number of our manuscripts are searchable through our database of online finding aids .
However, Acumen also provides access to our finding aids for collections located at both the A.S. WIlliams III Americana Collection and the W.S. Hoole Library. Just search under the tab "finding aids"!
