About the Collections

The NCAR Archives contains records in various formats including: paper documents and photos, audio, video, digital documents and photos, websites, and artifacts. 

  • Use the Collection Inventories database tab to search all collections regardless of analog or digital format. The inventories describe the contents of all collections but do not necessarily contain the digital content. Much of the material described in the inventories is only available on site or by request from the archivist.
  • Some material from the NCAR Archives has been digitized, and some was born digital. Use the Digital Collections tab to search only digital and digitized material available online. 
  • The NCAR Archives also crawls NCAR/UCAR websites. To search only website content, select the Archived Websites tab.
  • To search all material in the archives, select the Search All tab. Some material in this search may only be available on site at the NCAR Archives, or you may need to request a scan. Please contact us with any questions.
