Find more information about institutions for people with disabilities on our State Hospital Research Guide.
Search the library catalog for published materials and archival records about institutions. There are records documenting the operation of the institutions for people with disabilities and some records about individuals who were residents there.
Some of the finding aids for the state institutions serving people with disabilities are available online; others can be found in notebooks available in the library.
Records about individuals may be restricted to protect personal privacy. Library catalog records and finding aids will contain guidelines on restrictions.
