National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections

  • The National Union Catalog of Manuscript Collections is a cooperative cataloging program operated by the Library of Congress. Archival repositories located in the United States and its territories which are regularly open for research contribute cataloging data to the NUCMC program. NUCMC catalogers then create MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) bibliographic records in RLIN (Research Libraries Information Network) describing collections held by participants, and establish pertinent name and subject authority headings.

  • RLIN AMC files (Archival and Manuscript Control) can be searched by anyone free of charge from the NUCMC home page, using easy or advanced search forms.
