Some of you may remember that the Historical Society received a generous donation to enable standard library of congress cataloging for the book collection in the Helga J. Ingraham Memorial Library.  It may seem like it’s taken a long time, but staff, interns, and volunteers have been plugging away at the project, and we are thrilled that we can finally show you some results.  The catalog records for our books are being added to reQuest, the CT state library catalog.  If you search the entire state for something we have, our library will appear in the results.  If you want to limit your search to the catalog of the Helga J. Ingraham Memorial Library you can use this link.  Currently you’ll find parts of our reference collection.  In the near future the reference collection will be complete and our rare publications will be added.

Please remember that this catalog is for published works.  If you wish to search our manuscript collections, we’re adding more finding aids regularly to our online database, Archon.  Other materials are still described in our on site card catalog.  Keep checking both reQuest and Archon for more additions.

    Wow this is VERY COOL. I actually plugged in a topic & your search engine came up with several reference materials which your library has. This will be most useful to the MANY researchers who visit the LHS every year.
