How to Use This Site

The La MaMa Archives Digital Collections site is both a catalog and a digital archive, and it was designed to serve both researchers and general users. Site users can conduct targeted searches or browse at will, using the images and text available on this site as a guide. In the near future, we hope also to be able to offer curated digital exhibits.

The bulk of material in these digital collections describes La MaMa’s earliest years--what we call our Pushcart Era (1961-1985). A lot of these materials have not been digitized, so you may not be able to find here a digital representation of every resource in which you are interested. We are constantly adding to our digital collections, so keep checking back for updates and to browse new materials.
