Archives or Manuscripts

This page performs a combined search of archival and manuscript records across the following Yale catalogs:

  • Archives at Yale: the primary database for archival finding aids at Yale. Finding aids describe the creation, content, context, and arrangement of archival materials, allowing users to identify and request materials relevant to their research.
  • Orbis, the main library catalog: this source includes records of Yale Library collections which are not included in Archives at Yale, as well as archival records from the Internet Archive and more.
  • Morris, the Yale Law School Library catalog: this source includes archival records from the Yale Law Library.
  • HathiTrust, a collaborative digital library containing digitized primary source materials from multiple academic and research institutions.
