City of Boston Collections

The City Archives is now using ArchivesSpace as our online public access catalog.

The information previously available in our "Guide to the Records in the City of Boston Archives," which was created with grant funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), is now available in our catalog. Our catalog contains detailed descriptive information about our collections. The catalog also provides links to finding aids and online digital access when available.

We've digitized thousands of Boston's archival documents and photographs. You can browse our digitized and born digital records in our Digital Repository
