Finding Aids and Guides

A finding aid is a description of an archival collection, usually containing a history of the person or organization that produced the collection and an inventory of its contents..

When browsing this list of finding aids, please select “outline view” to retrieve a table of contents list links to a view which displays a navigation frame with individual sections of the finding aid; the sections may be searched and printed separately. This view will load quickly. You may select “full view” to view a single file which may be used for printing or searching within the entire finding aid, or if you encounter difficulty in using frames. A lengthy finding aid may load very slowly in full view. Additionally, you may select “PDF” to view and print the finding aid using Adobe Portable Document format.
