Accessible Archives

October 1 - September 30

Accessible Archives, Inc. was founded in 1990 with the goal of utilizing computer technology to make available vast quantities of archived historical information, previously furnished only in microformat, hard copy form or as images only. In pursuit of this vision, primary source material has been selected to reflect a broad view of the times, and has been assembled into databases with a strict attention to detail allowing access to specific information with pinpoint accuracy.  Our online full-text search capability and digital imaging permits the user to search and manipulate this information in ways never before possible. Accessible Archives, Inc. prides itself on its library friendly model with a license agreement developed by librarians and a subscription model that helps libraries build up to perpetual access.
