The Franco-American Collections of Geisel Library at Saint Anselm College contain over 3,500 monographs and periodicals as well as manuscripts collected by Franco-Americans in New Hampshire and across New England. Materials collected and created by Franco-Americans are in French and English and cover the culture, language, and history of the Franco-American communities of New England.

The purpose of the Franco-American Collections of Geisel Library is to develop and promote interest in and study of Franco-American culture and history for the College and the community—both locally and globally. This is accomplished by collecting, processing, preserving, and making accessible materials relevant to the Franco-American experience. The Franco-American Collections focus on Manchester and other areas of New Hampshire and New England, with additional materials representing the history and culture of French North America.
