Finding Aids

Finding Aid Directory

A finding aid is a guide or an inventory for an archival collection. It helps users learn what items or types of materials are in a collection through an overview of its contents. Often a finding aid also provides background information that is important to understanding a collection. Below are finding aids for some of The Trustees collections.
