Dumbarton Oaks' Online Inventory

Welcome to AtoM@DO, Dumbarton Oaks' online inventory of archival and photographic holdings using the ICA-AtoM collection management system. AtoM@DO is a growing catalog of the holdings of both the Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives (ICFA) and Dumbarton Oaks Archives (DOA). Learn more about the AtoM@DO inventory and ICA-AtoM.

Start by visiting Collections for an overview of the material currently available in AtoM@DO. Collection-level records include important information about the history of a collection or its creator, related materials and publications, along with access and reproduction restrictions and its preferred citation (template provided below).

Use the lefthand menus to browse in different ways: When on a collection-level record, click on the arrow to the left of the collection title to see the structure of each collection and a list of files. Or click on one of the access points: Names, Places or Subjects.

TO REQUEST MATERIALS FOR RESEARCH, make note of the reference code (found at the top of every record) and schedule an appointment at ICFA using the Appointment Request Form or with the DOA by emailing James Carder (carderj@doaks.org).

Preferred citation template: [Collection title], [Dates], [Reference code], [Department], Dumbarton Oaks, Trustees for Harvard University, Washington, D.C.
You can find each collection's complete preferred citation towards the bottom of the collection-level record in either the Notes or Rights area.
