I am working with Dr. Jane Zhang at the Catholic University of America to create a database of archives in Washington DC and the surrounding area and use BatchGeo to map the data. We would like your assistance to update our data.

Map of Nation's Capital Archives

Nation’s Capital Archives

View our current data

You can view our map and data at http://batchgeo.com/map/fef6c1bb0f02d5a2571a7751ceec67ad On the map you can enter your archive name in the search box (top right) or click on the marker for information about each archive; scroll below the map for the alphabetized list with details.

How you can help

You can help by completing our survey. The objective of our survey is to help verify our data and to identify dates for the foundation of the archives. We are also interested in identifying any archivists instrumental in the development of archival theory or practice. We would like your help verifying the information we have and filling in details, especially dates the archive was founded and archivists from the area. If you know of additional archival repositories that are not on our map, you can add that information as well.
