Archives of American Mathematics on the Web

By Kristy Sorensen

If you haven?t had a chance to visit the Archives of American Mathematics (AAM) on the web in the past, now is the time to take a look! Our main page is at the URL displayed below our logo.

Beyond the home page, our website is divided into three sections: Finding Aids, Resources, and Subject Guide. Each section includes valuable information for historians, mathematicians, and other interested parties.

Finding Aids

Seventy-two of our collection inventories are currently available online through the Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO) website. TARO is an inter-institutional project dedicated to providing greater online access to archival collections across the state of Texas. The inventories are searchable by keyword and generally provide a folder-level listing of the material in the collections, as well as biographical information about the creator. The alphabetical index of collections on the AAM page provides fast access to our collection inventories in the TARO project.


Our section on resources lists articles about the AAM, with links to articles available online, as well as useful downloads like a detailed subject index and PDF versions of our brochures and handouts, including a in-depth look at History of Science resources available at the University of Texas at Austin. It also features a brief list of helpful links for those interested in mathematical history including the page for the Joint Archives Committee of the American Mathematical Society/Mathematical Association of America and the Mathematics Genealogy Project.

Subject Guide

This page features a general overview of the AAM, as well as an annotated guide to selected mathematics collections, including links to the online inventories, when available.

AAM staff are always making updates and additions to the website, so please check back often to see what is new. If you have any comments or questions about the website, or suggestions for new content, feel free to contact me.

The Archives of American Mathematics is located at the Research and Collections division of the Center for American History on the University of Texas at Austin campus. Persons interested in conducting research or donating materials or who have general questions about the Archives of American Mathematics should contact Kristy Sorensen, Archivist,, (512) 495-4539.
