The books, published volumes, and periodicals in the holdings of the Delaware Public Archives (DPA) are now indexed in the Delaware Library Catalog. This online resource allows users to search through the collections of many different Delaware libraries and research facilities at once.

  • To locate books and published volumes from our collections, be sure to select “Delaware Public Archives” from the drop-down “Library:” box towards the middle of the Delaware Library Catalog Advanced Search page.
  • Please remember that, unlike a library, no documents (including published resources) may be “checked out” or otherwise removed from DPA’s Mabel Lloyd Ridgely Research Room.
  • In most cases photocopying services are available for a fee.
  • For more information on DPA’s participation in the Delaware Library Catalog, contact
