RISD Archives

a RISD-specific collection documenting people, buildings, history, events, and exhibitions


RISD Archives adopted the use of ArchivesSpace in summer of 2024. ArchivesSpace is an open source information management system that houses important archival documentation, including finding aids, accession records, and processing details. It is the most robust place to find information on our archives' holdings.

What to use ArchivesSpace for:

  • Most complete information on RISD archives holdings
  • Browse subjects, people, and organizations represented in the archives
  • Request material directly through Aeon, our appointment scheduling software
