Rhode Island Archival and Manuscript Collections Online 

The RIAMCO gateway provides access to archival and manuscript collections throughout Rhode Island. Researchers can locate collections relating to their research at ten Rhode Island repositories through one comprehensive website regardless of physical location. Individual or family papers that are split among repositories can be intellectually reunited as a result of online finding aids and the application of sophisticated search technologies developed in this project.
