Formats include private papers, organizational and business records, correspondence, photographs, maps and architectural drawings, audio-visual resources, artwork and ephemera which describe the region from pre-European contact to the present. Particular emphasis is given to collecting materials that document economic development, cultural and social history, environmental history, and other historically significant trends in the region.
