Collections Portal

 

The 390th Memorial Museum’s Collections Portal allows you to search across the entire museum collection including object, archival records and legacy databases. For an overview of how to use the Collections Portal, click here.

The Portal was designed to enable keyword searching across our archival and artifact collections. The portal contains four tabs. The first tab is the Object Catalog, which includes most of our artifact collection. The second tab is the Joseph A. Moller Archives. You can search only the archives by following the links below. The third tab is the Personnel Database, which displays basic information about some members of the 390th. For more about this database, see below. The fourth tab in the collections portal is the Mission Database, and contains basic information about the missions flow by the 390th.

Tutorials are available on our YouTube page. These tutorials cover the four tabs in the Collections Portal.

Visit the Collections Portal

 

Object Catalog

The museum’s object catalog is accessed on the left-hand tab of the collections portal. Its most unique feature is the opportunity for researchers and members of the public to contribute knowledge to a record. User contributed content will be made available to the public once reviewed by staff.

Joseph A. Moller Archive

The second tab in the Collections Portal is the Joseph A. Moller Archives.

Archives are organized hierarchically, grouping individual items into collections, series and folders. Please be aware not all these items have been digitized. As you search the archive, you will find primarily records of those materials. From time to time, watermarked versions of images and documents may be available. If there is a specific file, folder, series, or collection you are interested in examining, please contact collections staff. It is most helpful if you can provide the collection number and folder name/number with your request. We are happy to schedule an appointment for in person viewing.

While the Archives are available in the Collections Portal, use this button to view only archival records.

Personnel Database

The Personnel Database is the third tab in our Collections Portal. This database works by keyword search. After performing a keyword search across the Collections Portal (see screenshots below), you can search just the Personnel Database. Please note the Personnel Database was constructed over decades in the museum by dedicated volunteers. It does not include every member of the 390th and occasionally errors in the form of misspelled names and other inaccuracies are present in the data. If you are a descendant who wants complete service records, please consider contacting the National Archives. If you find information you would like to share with the museum, please contact us! If you are not a direct descendant of a veteran and wish to find information about a veteran, please check with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office and submit a records request.
