Our online collection guide search system allows you to search the finding aids of most of the open collections at the Rockefeller Archive Center.

The Rockefeller Archive Center is continuing to add collection information to this system as it becomes available. Some or our large archives, like those of the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller University, still have a few component collections not represented in the online system. A small number of our other collections, including some collections of personal papers, as well as collections currently being processed, are not yet represented either. Please contact the archival staff at for further information about these collections.
