What is a Repository?

A repository is “a place where things can be stored and maintained, [including] any type of organization that holds documents, including business, institutional, and government archives, manuscript collections, libraries, museums, and historical societies, and in any form, including manuscripts, photographs, moving image and sound materials, and their electronic equivalents.” Archival research can be challenging, but it can also be tremendously rewarding (and even fun) You may not find exactly what you were looking for, but you may also find much more than you expected.
