ArchiveGrid is a resource for identifying archives by geographical location or for identifying archives topically via their search function. Archives often contain historical documents, personal papers, and family histories. Thousands of libraries, museums, and archives have contributed nearly a million collection descriptions to ArchiveGrid.
The Online Archive of California (OAC) provides free public access to detailed descriptions of primary source collections maintained by more than 150 California institutions, including libraries, special collections, archives, historical societies and museums throughout the state. More than 20,000 finding aids are in the OAC.
Detailed information about using OAC finding aids (also called collection guides) is available http://www.oac.cdlib.org/help/detailedhelp.html#guides.
