Welcome to the NCAR/UCAR Archives!

Find what you're looking for:

This database contains descriptive finding aids for materials held by the UCAR/NCAR Archives. A finding aid is a guide outlining the arrangement of the collection that helps facilitate its access and use. Not all collections have been processed, but most have been added to the database albeit with limited information. Processed collections will have a full finding aid.

The database searches the descriptive information about each collection within each finding aid. Collections are typically described at the aggregate level of folders or boxes, items are not described at the item level. The database is most useful as a tool to gain knowledge about the nature, scope, and extent of the collections.

Search Tips
  • The search engine looks for records within descriptions of entire collections, not records for individual terms.
  • The search engine looks for records containing every term you submit.
  • To look for phrases, use double quotes, e.g. "NCAR Climate Club"
  • Browse by subject, name, division, or collection.
  • UCAR Communications provides access to UCAR/NCAR's image library and other media resources at the Visual & Multimedia Gateway
