Our Blaschka archive consists of drawings, notebooks, photos, letters, travel books and pictorial works. Some of these items are available on microfilm, and I attached the bibliography of these. These items can be requested via interlibrary loan. If you wish to borrow copies of library items, please contact your local library. The Rakow Research Library will lend designated books from its collection and will send copies of articles requested by other libraries. Your library can request items through the OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system or by direct request through email at For more information, please see our ILL website. You may also wish to contact Archives at Harvard University at 617-495-2461 or at their Ask A Librarian page. 

The Blaschka Archive is part of our digital collections. There are a variety of digital records available, such as botanical drawings, photographs, and account books. Former director David Whitehouse wrote an article, Blaschkas' Glass Models of Invertebrate Animals (1863–1890) and there are quite a few blogs on our site about our favorite Blaschkas', photographing the glass models, and a story about A Flood, A Fire, and The Case of the Missing Blaschka Models.
