Books and Other Published Materials
Most books and periodicals can be found in the Research Center’s online catalog, ARCHIE, which has entries for authors, titles, and subjects.
Use the catalog in conjunction with finding aids available in the Research Center. Finding aids supply lists of newspapers on microfilm by date, subject divisions for newspaper-clipping files, guides for some of the map collection and fire insurance atlases, and a subject guide to trade cards.
Research Center staff will assist you during your visit. Staff can
provide limited assistance by e-mail. For searches too extensive for staff to
undertake, patrons may wish to hire a freelance researcher.
