The Chelsea Quinn Yarbro Collection is comprised of 39 cubic feet of manuscripts and correspondence from 1978-2014.

Researchers are responsible for securing copyright permission from the author when duplicating any unpublished or published works included in the collection. The finding aid was completed by Patricia Falk in February 2010 and updated by Manuscripts & Outreach Archivist Steve Ammidown in June 2017.

Certain titles include either galleys, book proposals, or book covers. There is a very limited amount of correspondence regarding two specific novels and some scattered correspondence from 1976-1988.
