Search Collections


This will let you explore our online collections database where you can access the full inventory of the Dole Archive and Special Collections as well as a digital library of over 1,800 photos and documents.

Search tips:

  • The keyword search will return records containing all search terms entered.
  • Use quotation marks around words to search for a specific phrase (e.g., "food stamps").
  • Use a minus sign before the word you want to omit from your results (e.g., 'food -stamps' will not return any records with the word 'stamps' in the title or description).

Or, feel free to browse the Collections Database and Digital Library (will open in a new window). Here you can browse the inventory by collection name, subject, title, etc.
