Archive Project: Olympics

The H-Sport Archive Project provides information about archival collections that are of interest to sport scholars.  While many sport museums and sport organizations are well-known to sport scholars, the H-Sport Archive Project highlights sport collections held at non-sport archives.

Scholars interested in using these collections should consult the archive's website and contact the archive directly regarding visiting the archive and any specific regulations pertaining to accessing the collections.

The H-Sport Archive Project team also welcomes suggestions of collections to include.
