The collections of the Phillips Library consist of manuscripts, books, pamphlets, newspapers and documents created for personal, business, legal, artistic, didactic and scholarly use. The scope is global.
Within the museum, not all items created on paper are held in the library. For works of art on paper contact the American Decorative Arts Department. For photographs contact the Photography Department. For nautical navigation charts contact the Maritime Department.

Although most of the library’s 5,000 linear feet of manuscripts and archives relate directly to Essex County, as a result of the area’s maritime connections, the records are global in scope.
