Online Collections Catalog


Historic resources just got a little easier to locate. Newport Historical Society’s artifact and photograph collections can be accessed online through Gladys.  As collections are inventoried, processed, and cataloged, they will become available online via Gladys. Manuscript collections will appear on the state-wide archival gateway, RIAMCO. While formal processing of NHS manuscripts is underway, you can access basic data about the NHS’ holdings with the Archives & Manuscripts Inventory spreadsheet.

Since December 2011, NHS has been making collections accessible online through Gladys. Users can now find increasingly more NHS Manuscript Collections online as archival documents are inventoried, processed, and cataloged. The record display includes the scope and general content of each archival collection, a historical or biographical note, and subject terms.

NHS is also excited to announce their inclusion in the Rhode Island Archival and Manuscript Collections Online, RIAMCO, a gateway that provides access to archival and manuscript collections throughout Rhode Island. Researchers can locate collections relating to their research at twelve Rhode Island repositories through one comprehensive website, streamlining their research process.

This catalog was developed as part of our Lost & Found collections project, with support from:

The van Beuren Charitable Foundation

The Alletta Morris McBean Charitable Trust

The Newport County Fund of the Rhode Island Foundation

The Bay and Paul Foundations

…and many charitable individuals.
