Use the Archives and Special Collections finding aids to research rare books and manuscript collections. A finding aid is a descriptive tool that includes the contents and arrangement of materials in a collection. Finding aids can help you determine whether or not a collection is relevant to your research needs.
Finding aids are detailed inventories, registers, indexes, and guides to describe collections of primary source materials. They provide a comprehensive overview of a collection's scope and contents. They define the conditions under which a collection may be accessed or copied, explain its provenance, and contain histories of individuals and organizations connected with the collection.
Please cite the collection number (e.g. SPEC. 003) and the box number (e.g. Boxes 1 and 2) to request specific materials.
