What is a Finding Aid?

A finding aid is a document containing detailed information about a specific collection of papers or records within an archive.  Finding aids are used by researchers to determine whether information within a collection is relevant to their research. 

 

Usually, a finding aid includes a description of the scope of the collection, biographical and historical information related to the collection, and restrictions on use of or access to the materials.  (Finding aids are created at every stage of archival processing and may come under the headings of "inventories" and "container lists" as well as finding aids.)

 

For more information on how to access the materials represented by the finding aids, please contact the University Archivist directly.
