About this Site

Discover items in NHC's collections by using the finding aids, registers, and inventories in this database. These finding aids may differ in format or level of detail, but they are all intended to help you find the material you need, similar to a book's index.

Some finding aids contain links to digitized versions of documents or images, but in most instances, you must make an appointment to view these non-circulating collections in NHC's Reading Room.
