David Sarnoff Library collections

About this collection

    The David Sarnoff Library collections (Accession 2464) include the research records, the papers of individual scientists, photographs, films and sound recordings that document the research and development conducted at the David Sarnoff Research Center and other RCA facilities from the early days of the Radio Corporation of America to the David Sarnoff Research Center’s operations in the 1980s and 1990s.
    It also includes the original David Sarnoff papers (Accession 2464.55) collection, assembled by Sarnoff and his staff to document his career. These formed the core of the David Sarnoff Library when it opened at the David Sarnoff Research Center in Princeton in 1967. When the library closed in 2009, the archival collections were donated to Hagley and the museum objects went to The College of New Jersey.
    This digital collection offers a small sample material selected from the David Sarnoff Library collections at Hagley, which encompasses twenty collections and nearly 3,000 linear feet of material. To learn more about these collections, click here.
