Since 1855, the Connecticut State Library has acquired historical records from the three branches of State government. In 1909, the General Assembly made the State Library the official State Archives. Today, the Archives includes more than 32,000 cubic feet of records documenting the evolution of state public policy and its implementation, the rights and claims of citizens, and the history of Connecticut and its people.

Reference services and access to archival records are available through the History and Genealogy Unit, 860-757-6580, Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:15 p.m.; and on Saturday from 9:15 a.m. – 1:45 p.m. except on state holidays.
