MARCH 2020

Welcome to the Research Library + Archives Blog!

While our doors may be closed, the Albany Institute of History & Art Library invites you to continue learning about the history of Albany and the Upper Hudson Valley through our digital resources.

We currently have a selection of materials on our New York Heritage site, which is a portal for learning more about the people, places, and events that contributed to the making of New York State. The collection up now contains 29 items of local businesses and events from 1770-1970. We will be continuing to add collections to this site in the coming days.

We will also be updating our website and library catalog with new content, previewing upcoming exhibitions, and posting blogs about our activities, research, and much more!

We look forward to finding new ways to engage with our community during this time and plan to see you again at the museum in the near future.

In the meantime, please stay healthyand remember to keep a record of your daily life during this time. Future researchers will need to know how we all pulled through this, and your account matters!
