To view the images, you must submit a reference request to AJHS- NEA, and include your OCLC Worldcat user name (to create an OCLC Worldcat account click here). When submitting your reference request, you will also need to include the name of the collection(s), the box number(s) and folder number(s) you wish to view.  You can submit your request here.

If you are interested in a collection that is not currently online, let us know. We have digitized most of our collections and are currently in the process of uploading them to the digital archives, and we may be able to accommodate your request. You can view our finding aids by selecting the “Collections” tab on our menu bar.
