Alaska's Digital Archives
Established in 1900, the Alaska Historical Collections (AS 14.56.080) in the Alaska State Library is a major repository for historical manuscripts, photographs, newspapers, maps, books, and other publications, along with significant personal collections.
The Alaska Historical Collections preserves the first copy of any state publication. It maintains the master microfilm copies of those Alaska newspapers (1866-present) not filmed commercially. The materials are arranged, described, and cataloged according to national standards. At-risk materials, such as glass plates, fragile documents, rare books and maps receive conservation treatment and archival housing.
The Alaska Historical Collections is open to the public.
