Access Archives & Secured Collections

This guide provides information about using archival records at the Connecticut State Library.

Using Archives & Secured Collections

Collections, including the State Archives, that require special care and handling because of their unique nature, their fragility, or a combination of factors are located in limited access areas. Use the information in this guide to learn how to request and view archival records.  The link to the State Archives Finding Aids will show what original materials we hold. In addition to the finding aids, researchers can also search the State Archives holdings by topic at the Connecticut Archives Online website.
