Get Started With Our Collections

AHC collections go beyond Wyoming's or the region's borders and support a wide range of research and teaching activities in the humanities, sciences, arts, business, and education. Major areas of collecting include Wyoming and the American West, the mining and petroleum industries, environment and natural resources, journalism, military history, transportation, the history of books, and 20th century entertainment such as popular music, radio, television, and film. Total manuscripts and archives holdings are roughly 75,000 cubic feet (or nearly 15 miles) of material. Toppan Library holds more than 50,000 items from medieval illuminated manuscripts to the 21st Century. Subject strengths include the American West, British and American literature, early exploration of North America, religion, hunting and fishing, natural history, women authors, and the book arts.

There are several ways to learn more about our holdings:
