ABOUT THE ARIZONA MEMORY PROJECT (AMP)

The Arizona Memory Project provides access to the wealth of primary sources in Arizona libraries, archives, museums and other cultural institutions. Visitors to the site will find some of the best examples of government documents, photographs, maps, and objects that chronicle Arizona's past and present.

The Arizona Memory Project was launched in March 2006 and has been granted the Arizona Centennial 2012 legacy project designation by the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission. The Arizona Centennial 2012 legacy projects support the  Arizona State Centennial Celebration.

The items in the Arizona Memory Project represent only a small percentage of the materials held by contributing institutions. Please feel free to contact any of the Arizona Memory Project contributing institutions for more information.

The Arizona Memory Project is an OAI-compliant digital library and is a registered data contributor on OAIster.org and the Open Archives Initiative.

This project is made possible in part by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act.
