Ephemera collections

Ephemera collections are those materials that are often not unique, may be published or copies of materials, and may be found through other sources. Following is a list of collections or items held by Archives and Special Collections that are not typically archival materials. Materials may be gathered by topic or type, such as postcards. The list below is arranged alphabetically by creator or by topic.

In the case of newspapers or some publications, interested researchers may be asked to use microfilm or other copies held in the Consortium Library's general collections. For our users not in the Anchorage area, many of the published materials found below can be located at many libraries and may be available through inter-library loan.
