Finding Digital Archives

If you aren't sure where to start, try using the search feature on one of these digital archival collections. Remember that a digital archive is similar in purpose to a physical archive, but the historical documents and objects that provide evidence of the past have been digitized. 

Asian American Archival Collections

This is a list of some of the many collections related to Asian American Studies in libraries and museums. Remember that not all collections are digitized on this list. An archive is a place in which public records or historical documents are preserved. Archives contain archival materials, which "are information objects that serve as evidence of past events" (Peter Van Garderen, 2007).
