The Special Collections Research Center on the Ann Arbor campus is home to the Janice Bluestein Longone Culinary Archive, a rich resource for studying the history of food and drink in America. The collection includes many cookery books, from as early as the 16th century. It also has much food-related ephemera: menus, promotional and souvenir cookbooks, and advertising material.
Other useful resources include its large collection of community cookbooks, and its hotel and restaurant, and travel collections. Most of the materials are American in origin, but the collection includes many of the important European works that contributed to the formation of cuisine and culinary sensibility in America.
The holdings of the JBLCA can be searched through Mirlyn.
