Digital Collections and Archives is Tufts University's archives and manuscript repository and is the home to more than 700 unique collections documenting the history of Tufts and several specialized subject areas. DCA's collections range from the papers of activists Lois Gibbs and Rubin Carter and broadcaster Edward R. Murrow, to the records of student and faculty documenting life at the University. DCA collects both analog and digital material. All collections are described and discoverable online in the Tufts Digital Library.

We are open without fee to the public, and we welcome researchers regardless of academic or professional affiliation.
