Yale University students, faculty, and staff have access to a variety of digital archives. While the Beinecke and Manuscripts and Archives have digitized many items in their collections, the library has also purchased several digital archives from academic/educational vendors. For these you will need to be on Yale's VPN system or logging in from campus.
Digital archives allow for easily accessible and searchable access to a variety of primary source materials, and many of the collections below include additional instructional materials, essays, and interactive chronologies and maps.
