Mission Statement

The Montgomery College Libraries Special Collections Office exists to provide access to materials and memorabilia related to the history, function, and activities of Montgomery College. To do this, the Special Collections librarian accepts materials from the College community and the public that have historical value and preserves and organizes materials for research, study, and education.

Historical Collection

The collection includes documents and memorabilia related to the early and evolving history of Montgomery College, as well as catalogs, student newspapers, Bliss School records, faculty, staff, and student publications, newspaper clippings, historical photographs, and much more.  The Libraries Special Collections Office utilizes an offsite storage facility to house its permanent collection. Select materials, including photographs and students newspapers, have been digitized and are available online.

Contact Information

Non-restricted materials from the permanent collection are available for reference and research purposes to the MC community and to the public upon request. Research is by appointment only so please contact the Libraries Special Collections Office to schedule the date and time. You may contact Shelly Jablonski, librarian, by e-mail or phone at 240-567-7174.
