Ships and Ship Registers: Sources of Information

Databases and Internet Resources

This section includes sources for ship-specific information like specifications as well as images. There are a number of free sources with images and information but it is impossible to include them all. Also included are other archival collections around the United States that cover ships. While all archival collections could not be included, sources like Archive Grid External could be helpful in finding other local and alternative sources and collections.

Subscription and Free Databases

The subscription resources marked with a padlock  are available to researchers on-site at the Library of Congress. If you are unable to visit the Library, you may be able to access these resources through your local public or academic library.
