Research in Collections

Researchers interested in gaining access to material in the OCMH archives should submit a Research Request Form to the Curator of Collections at least four weeks prior to your proposed visit. For additional information please contact the Curator at

Additional resources for research on the Oneida Community are available at Syracuse University and Hamilton College.

Syracuse University Libraries has an extensive Oneida Community collection.  A selection of material and publications have been digitized and can be viewed here.  All archival material can be accessed by appointment at the Syracuse University’s Special Collections library. An inventory of the materials in this collection is available here.

Hamilton College Library’s Digital Collections includes information about the thousands of volumes found in the Library of the Oneida Community as well as digital scans of the Community’s Daily Journal (1866-68) and their run of the American Socialist.

For more information on the Oneida Community and Oneida, Ltd., check out our Bibliography of recommended works.
