Collections

CHSA values the importance of our collections. At the moment we are investing in developing the capacity of the collection of nearly 22,000 Chinese and Chinese American historical artifacts. We are investing over $1,000,000 in an overhaul of the collection archive rooms and digitally scanning many of our files and objects to make them more searchable and usable for the future.
As we embark on this endeavor, to better serve you, we are pausing all research requests. We look forward to sharing with you and keeping you updated on our progress as we modernize our archival collections.
Thanks for your understanding and patience.
