This helpful discovery tool allows patrons to keyword search across archival collections held at D&A and other Columbia University archival repositories. Additionally, the portal allows patrons to browse collections by creator, title, and subject.


Use the Columbia University’s Libraries Online Catalog (CLIO) to find collection-level and project-level records for D&A holdings. For tips on finding archival material through CLIO see the Archives and Manuscript Help Page.


Finding aids are collection guides, descriptive documents created by archivists that detail a collection’s arrangement and contents. Some collections have only a paper finding aid that can be consulted in the D&A reading room.


Information on certain individual drawings or items in D&A’s holdings, or some small groups of material for which there is no major collection, can be found on traditional library cards. This card catalog can be consulted in the D&A reading room or on Avery’s 200-level.


Portions of collections may be available as they are processed. Please email Drawings & Archives for information about their status and availability.
