There are so many wonderful repositories that hold primary material; material that you'd otherwise might never get to see or use in your research. One of my favorite ways to track down new information is by looking for Archives in the area where I'm doing research. One of my go-to resources is ArchiveGrid, a site hosted by the phenomenal WorldCat.
ArchiveGrid looks like this:
The beauty is that you don't have to know exactly where to look; they have search options for both "location or zip" and dropdown menus by State. As you can see, they also include a section with the latest additions and information about the site.
So, if you haven't checked it out yet, why not poke around during American Archives Month?
