Catalogs from 1829 to the present are now available through the [https://digitalarchive.wm.edu/handle/10288/2099 W&M Digital Archive]. Modern college catalogs are best remembered for detailed course descriptions and information about degree requirements, but catalogs also include other important information about the university, its people, buildings, and history. In university catalogs you will find lists of faculty and staff, highlights of facilities and services, academic policies, descriptions of student groups, and much more information intended to inform current and attract potential students. Catalogs from the 19th and early 20th centuries are a treasure trove for researchers of not only William & Mary history, but also family history as they list faculty, staff, students, and alumni.

As the university has grown, separate catalogs for schools and divisions have been published by William & Mary including the [[School of Marine Science]], [[School of Education]], and [[Graduate Arts & Sciences Program]]. Recent catalogs from these programs are available here, but the majority of these catalogs have not yet been digitized. Historical divisions of William & Mary that no longer exist such as the Extension and Evening Colleges, [[Richmond Division]] (Virginia Commonwealth University), [[Norfolk Branch]] (Old Dominion University), etc. have not yet been digitized. Paper copies are available in [[Swem Library]]'s [[Special Collections Research Center]].

The Catalog of the College of William and Mary includes course descriptions and information about the campus.

Catalogs from 1829 to the present are now available through the W&M Digital Archive. Modern college catalogs are best remembered for detailed course descriptions and information about degree requirements, but catalogs also include other important information about the university, its people, buildings, and history. In university catalogs you will find lists of faculty and staff, highlights of facilities and services, academic policies, descriptions of student groups, and much more information intended to inform current and attract potential students. Catalogs from the 19th and early 20th centuries are a treasure trove for researchers of not only William & Mary history, but also family history as they list faculty, staff, students, and alumni.

As the university has grown, separate catalogs for schools and divisions have been published by William & Mary including the School of Marine Science, School of Education, and Graduate Arts & Sciences Program. Recent catalogs from these programs are available here, but the majority of these catalogs have not yet been digitized. Historical divisions of William & Mary that no longer exist such as the Extension and Evening Colleges, Richmond Division (Virginia Commonwealth University), Norfolk Branch (Old Dominion University), etc. have not yet been digitized. Paper copies are available in Swem Library's Special Collections Research Center.
