Digital resources

Many collections from the American Antiquarian Society are available digitally via databases, inventories, and online exhibitions. Databases include both resources that are freely available as well as subscription-only resources (these are clearly indicated in the chart below). Subscription databases can be freely accessed by readers who are on-site in the library. Collections inventories, which are all freely available, will include a mix of information including simple lists of objects or names, image files of individual pieces in a collection, descriptions of objects, or a combination of all of these. Online exhibitions are freely available and include descriptive and historical content about a collection as well as images and related resources.
