Search the General Catalog
NOTICE: We will be upgrading our General Catalog on Monday and Tuesday, April 28th-29th. The catalog will not be available during this time. If you are planning to use the library on those days, please create requests in advance for any materials you wish to consult with the My Web AAS request system.
The American Antiquarian Society general catalog contains records for the Society's collections of books, pamphlets, manuscripts, newspapers, lithographs, and broadsides. For information on the cataloging status of each collection, consult the individual collection descriptions.
