Conducting Research at the Museum

The Shiloh Museum’s collection includes over 500,000 historic images, over 10,000 archival artifacts, and extensive vertical files. The museum’s materials are used for in-house research, publications, exhibits, publicity, and educational programming. These resources are also available to historians, genealogists, students, journalists, publishers, etc.

Photo and research materials are housed in the museum’s research library. At this time the museum does not have an online database of its photographic holdings nor are its photo finding aids available for public perusal. Staff can provide information about the content of the collections on a case-by-case basis.

Contact research specialist Rachel Whitaker to get started with your project.
