Getting Started

What are archives?

Archives are non-current records of individuals, groups, institutions, and governments that contain information of enduring value. Archival repositories select, preserve and make available these records.

The collection includes oral histories, recorded music, photographs, films, manuscript collections, sheet music and orchestrations.
