With over a century of collecting, the Arkansas State Archives preserves and manages an extensive and diverse collection of materials related to Arkansas. The collections of the Arkansas State Archives can be searched through several online platforms described and linked below. At this time, the ASA is in the process of restructuring its digital collection offerings. Our online offerings will grow in months to come, with new resource collections and data sets becoming available.
Online searches do not cover the full extent of the State Archives’ vast holdings. If you can not find what you are looking for, please contact the ASA through Ask An Archivist, email [email protected], or call 501-682-6900 and our staff will be happy to help you with your research needs.
