ArchiveGrid is the redesigned version of Archival Resources. ArchiveGrid provides centralized access for searching and retrieval of archival finding aids in dispersed collections and also provides access to the comprehensive collection descriptions written by archivists. Finding aids are tools for navigation within archival collections, and contain detailed information about the collections. The bibliographic record can be used as a link to an electronic finding aid and the finding aid can also serve as a link to actual archival materials that have been digitized. Over 2,500 libraries, museums, and archives worldwide have contributed nearly a million record descriptions to ArchiveGrid.


Brief search tips are provided on the left of each screen; more tips are available by clicking on Help, which is linked from the bottom of every screen.
