Women's Archives Directory

In 2001, this directory was established to "map" archival repositories with collections relating to women. It provides potential donors and researchers with information about repositories that collect women's history. Best of all, it is national in scope and key-word searchable.

How to use this directory:

Click on the "search" link below. Searching by one of several methods will compile a list of organizations. Clicking on a name will bring up the record in a separate window. You will be able to see what types of women's records are being collected where and learn about individual repositories.

With any questions, comments, or concerns about the directory, please contact the project coordinator at wlarchives@luc.edu

  • Search the archives directory by organization name, city, state or keyword. Each record provides the organization's address, contact information, Internet address (when available), materials collected, and holdings.

  • Scroll through the archives directory.
