A Useful Database


Archives contain incredible primary source materials.  Because these materials are rare, and sometimes valuable, they are rarely allowed to leave the archive. 

If you identify archival materials that are located far away, you may be able to get copies of some materials by paying the archive to photocopy or scan materials for you.  Do not expect that archives will copy materials for free.
