Northwestern University Libraries is happy to report our travel grant to support research at the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections and University Archives at Northwestern University. The Charles Deering McCormick Library Research Grant was established in 2021 to facilitate and support research projects that significantly benefit from the substantial onsite use of unique, special, and archival collections within our library.

Applications are now open for the 2022-2023 Northwestern Libraries Research Grants.

The Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections and University Archives is home to many of the Libraries' rarest materials, including manuscripts, archives, prints, and artifacts. In addition to the University Archives which document the history of Northwestern, its faculty, staff, alumni and the city of Evanston, the McCormick Library of Special Collections has particular strengths in 20th-century music and performance art, women’s history, journalism, and social, political, and literary movements of the 1960s in the United States. It additionally holds a diverse array of significant discrete print and hybrid collections of material including ones related to the Siege and Commune of Paris of 1870-71, the poet Horace, the archive of the Gate Theatre of Dublin, 19th and early 20th century anarchism, and 20th century art and literary movements such as Dadaism, Surrealism, and Futurism.
