Asian/Pacific American Documentary Heritage Archives Survey

Funded by a grant from the Metropolitan New York Library Council, The Asian/Pacific American Documentary Heritage Archives Survey a collaboration is a collaboration between the NYU Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Archives and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute.

It is the first systematic attempt to map available and potential Asian/Pacific American archival collections in the New York metropolitan area. The project seeks to address the underrepresentation of East Coast Asian America in historic scholarship and archives by working with community-based organizations and individuals to survey their records and raise awareness within the community about the importance of documenting and preserving their histories.

The project's website (, brings together descriptions of the often fragmentary and scattered documentary heritage of the New York Asian/Pacific American community, and aims to serve as a central resource for information about these surveyed hidden collections.
