Emory University is home to the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. The archives boast impressive collections in the areas of African American history, literature and poetry, modern politics, and Southern history.

The literature and poetry collections feature the papers of such authors as Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney, Salman Rushdie, and Alice Walker. The Rose Library is also home to the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library, an extensive collection of more than 75,000 volumes of English-language poetry.

Sometimes scholars cannot make it to Emory’s campus to visit the archives in person, but need to access our collections for research purposes. As a freelance researcher with three years experience, I am available to travel to the archives as your proxy research assistant, scan images, take notes, and send digital documents to you when you’re unable to travel. If you are interested in these services, please contact me via email. References available upon request.
