The Clements Library website includes events, exhibits, subject guides, newsletter issues, library staff, and more.

The William L. Clements Library collects, preserves, and makes available historical resources about the Americas, with particular strengths in 18th and 19th century American history.

The Clements Library is now open for research by appointment.

Help us memorialize the late Dr. Julius S. Scott III, a Lecturer in Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan and author of the groundbreaking book The Common Wind: Afro-American Currents in the Age of the Haitian Revolution. Dr. Scott’s colleagues, students, friends, and family have spearheaded fundraising to create an endowed research fellowship in his memory at the Clements Library, an institution rich in historical resources related to the eighteenth-century Atlantic World and Caribbean.
