Archives & Manuscripts Collections

The Alliance’s Archives and Manuscripts Collections Service provides enhanced access to thousands of archival and manuscript collections in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington through a union database of Encoded Archival Description (EAD) finding aids (Archives West) and support for archival collection management with ArchivesSpace. The Archives West database provides a cross-search capability for member institutions and places members’ collections into context with related collections from other institutions.

Members of the A&M service include cultural institutions across the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West.

The program is advised by the Unique & Local Content Team.
