Archival and Historical Institutions in New York State

Last verified December 2013

The following is a list of institutions in New York State that either have historical documents and manuscripts or the potential to hold such material. The list includes academic institutions, public libraries, museums, special libraries, historical societies, and governmental agenices. The list does not include many corporate agencies. URLs are provided in a good faith effort to provide contact information but given the ephemeral nature of websites some links will undoubtedly be broken over the course of time. Also, please note that not all URLs lead directly to a unit of an institution that deals with archives or special collections. In many cases only base URLs are available.

This list was compiled by John Bewley. URLs were checked in 2013 by James Evans.
