About Finding Aids

Finding aids provide information about the content of manuscript collections. A finding aid includes descriptive information, including a list of boxes, their contents, and the order the material is arranged. A finding aid also includes information such as name of the respository, the dates of the collection, acquistion information, copyright information, and proper citation style.

The majority of our collections have not been digitized. Individual items -- documents, photographs, etc. -- usually cannot be viewed online. Please contact a member of our staff if you need more detailed information about a collection.
