Finding Aids

Finding aids are indexes to archival and manuscript collections. Information in a finding aid usually places the collection in a historical or biographical context and may contain a basic or detailed inventory. Researchers use finding aids to determine if the content of a collection is relevant to their research.

Many of our finding aids are available online, though not all, so you may still wish to contact us for help identifying sources.
