The Berea College Printing Department (today known as Printing Services) started in the 1880s as a small shop with a Washington hand press in "The Castle" (a small two-story house iin the southwest corner of the campus).  With growing technologies and changes in locations (including at times the top floor of Lincoln Hall and in the William's Building) the department continued to grow and by 1905 had taken the shape of a job office that created publications not only for Berea College but the city.

Today, located in Stephenson Hall, Printing Services serves the printing, duplicating, and copying needs of the Berea campus and the local community.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The records of Printing Services include historical materials, sample publications, memorandum and notices, and two books of press cuts.
