The Archives & Special Collections are located on the first floor of the Martin Library of the Sciences at Franklin and Marshall College. The library is located off Harrisburg Avenue (approximately 850 Harrisburg Avenue) between Race and College Avenues on the College campus.
Parking can be difficult during the school year but can be found along the nearby 600 and 700 blocks of College Avenue and in lots off Harrisburg Avenue (the College Square and the Alumni Sports and Fitness Center lots). On campus visitor parking near the Public Safety office off Race Avenue may also be available and there are a limited number of designated visitor parking spaces available (by obtaining a permit from Public Safety) in the nearby Williamson lot.
