Founded in 1968, the Society of Ohio Archivists’ mission is to exchange information, coordinate activities, and improve professional competence in Ohio’s archives and manuscript repositories. Membership in the society is open to the public, and we invite anyone with an interest in archives and manuscripts to join.


The Society’s archives are held at The Ohio State University Archives. Download the Finding Aid box list (XLSX)
