The Long Island Studies Institute

The Long Island Studies Institute, a cooperative endeavor of Hofstra University and Nassau County, is a major center for the study of Long Island local and regional history. The Institute's research facility includes the Nassau County Museum's reference collection and Hofstra University's James N. MacLean American Legion Memorial collection. These resources – books, photographs, newspapers, maps, census records, genealogies, government documents, manuscripts, and audiovisual materials – constitute a rich repository for local history research. The Institute's collections are available to scholars, teachers, students, and the general public.
