Accessing these Materials
USING ROSE LIBRARY
The Rose Library is located in the Robert W. Woodruff Library in the heart of Emory University’s main Atlanta campus. We are a closed-stacks library, which means that all of our holdings are accessible only in our on-site reading room. However, we welcome all researchers, whether you are researching an academic work or fulfilling a personal passion. You can use the information below to plan a visit or contact us with questions.
The Emory University Libraries Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library promotes access and learning, equity, and justice by documenting, preserving, and making accessible distinctive and diverse collections and records. The Rose Library fosters original research and critical engagement with the past by engaging diverse communities through innovative outreach, programming, and exhibitions.
