Berklee Archives serves as the primary repository for materials documenting the history, activities, and contributions of the Boston Conservatory (est. 1867) and Berklee College of Music (est. 1945), with additional special collections in jazz and popular music. Given Berklee’s stature as the preeminent institute of contemporary music and the performing arts, the Archives preserves, supports, and promotes Berklee’s multidisciplinary curriculum by providing historical context and content that fosters virtuosity, innovation, collaboration, and community.

The Archives is located in the Stan Getz Library at 150 Massachusetts Ave. in Boston, Massachusetts. Access to archival materials is available by appointment, Monday - Thursday from 10am to 4pm. For research assistance, please contact archives@berklee.edu or call 617-747-8001.
