Rhode Island Collection

The materials in the Rhode Island Collection are by, for and about Rhode Island and its people. The collection consists of nearly 10,000 books, an image collection containing over 7,000 photographs of people, places and buildings available in print and online, historic and current maps pertaining to Rhode Island cities and towns, newspapers, clippings, pamphlets, reference works, and selected documents from the State of Rhode Island and the City of Providence. Our Rhode Island Index has been maintained since the early 1900s and offers access to the materials in this collection and is the only available index to the Providence Journal and Evening Bulletin for 1900-2004.
