About the collections



Featuring materials from the Library, the Museum of Connecticut History, and the State Archives.

Special hint for researchers using the State Publications collection...

If you are searching our digital collections for titles that come in multiple volumes or issues, it is better to use CONSULS, the State Library catalog than the Search box on our digital collections pages. This is because the Results display from CONSULS will show more complete information about each volume. Another advantage is that CONSULS may have links to additional online resources that are not in our digital collections.

To use CONSULS, look up the item in our catalog using “Keyword,” “Title,” “Author,” “Subject,” or “Advanced” options. If the item is available online, there will be an “Available online:” link provided. Clicking the link will take you to the item, or if it is in multiple volumes, a list of available items.

Remember, however, that you are searching the catalog, and not the items themselves. If you wish to browse through all items that contain a specific phrase or set of keywords, use digital collections Search, but when you are looking for a specific volume or title, use CONSULS.
