Research at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West
At the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, research by staff, visiting scholars, and interested visitors is an important part of what we do.
McCracken Research Library
The McCracken Research Library is a specialized library and archives within the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming.
The Papers of William F. Cody
The Center of the West and the Papers project are working jointly with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in creating the William F. Cody Archive, an invaluable record of late nineteenth and early-twentieth-century American national development.
Each year, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West offers a limited number of research stipends to bring promising and established visiting western scholars. Using our resources, scholars study, write, and develop ideas and manuscripts that expand the horizon of western studies.
