  • Description Archive Finder is a compilation of information about primary source materials in manuscript and special collections in the United States, United Kingdom, and Ireland. Included are records for more than 200,000 separate collections in over 5,000 repositories. Archive Finder offers detailed subject indexing of finding aids, and the database may be searched by collection name, repository, date, geographical location, or subject. Contact information for repositories is provided as well. Much of the information comes from three print sources: Directory of Archives and Manuscripts Repositories in the United States (DAMRUS), the National Union Catalogue of Manuscript Collections (NUCMC), and the National Inventory of Documentary Sources in the United States (NIDS), and NIDS UK/Ireland. (Updated quarterly)
