AMNH Archives Catalog


The American Museum of Natural History Archives Catalog brings together finding aids from the Museum Archives as well as Scientific Department Archives. Use the catalog to search across archival collections relating to the history of the Museum: its scientists and staff, scientific expeditions and research, Museum exhibitions, education, and general administration. These archives include departmental records and manuscript collections of individuals closely associated with the Museum or with the history of natural science. The American Museum of Natural History Archives Catalog is administered by the David S. and Ruth L. Gottesman Research Library and Learning Center and is powered by ArchivesSpace.

Requesting Materials

Each finding aid includes information on how to request access to materials in the Repository Details at the bottom of the record. Each repository has individualized hours and policies governing access to its collections. Please contact the repository with questions about using the materials.
