The Archaeological Research Center has developed a version of its Archaeological Resources Management System (ARMS) database package for access from the Web. A variety of access levels is available to users, depending on need. Researchers and government agencies should contact the Center for further details. Note that full access to the ARMS database is on a fee basis. Prospective users must apply by completing a user agreement and submitting the relevant fee. More information is available at the Archaeological Research Center web site resources page and fees page. The general public can also use the system, although not all data categories are available.

Before using ARMS, users must log in.

Login: Note to professional users: the ARMS data system is meant to provide a snapshot of current information on archaeological sites in the state. It cannot be used in place of a formal records search for meeting the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
