Collection guides, or finding aids offer a descriptive summary of the collection and its organization as well as a detailed inventory of its contents. A collection's finding aid helps researchers determine if a collection contains materials of interest to them and, if so, where that material is located in the collection.
Searchable collection guides are available online and in the reading room for some University Archives' holdings. Not all collections housed in University Archives have an online finding aid. Additional finding aids will be added as they become available.
