Archival Collections A-Z

Archival Collections A-Z

CPL's Archival Collections are available for browsing on our website and via our A-Z finding aid list. Finding aids are detailed documents that describe archival collections and their contents. Search or browse our finding aids to find unique, archival material about Chicago history.

We are also migrating all collections to ArchivesSpace, a new collection management system. On ArchivesSpace, you can learn more details about what is in our collections and use that information to help guide your research appointments. When we complete the migration of our finding guides into ArchivesSpace, all information about archives and special collections will be found there.

Visit ArchivesSpace, opens a new window (opens in a new tab).

To view our materials in person, please make an appointment at one of our locations.
