Since the New York State Historical Association moved to Cooperstown in the 1940s, its Research Library has gathered hundreds of manuscript collections. Most of them are stored in boxes, making access difficult for researchers, both professional and avocational. To begin to remedy this, the library was recently awarded a grant to make manuscripts spanning the 18th to the 21st centuries more accessible to researchers and the community by putting finding aids to the collections online. The manuscripts include business, personal, family, military, and agricultural records.
