About This Collection
"Finding aids" are descriptions of special collections and archives materials, which may include information such as:
Finding aids often are significant documents themselves, containing substantial information about the topic or person covered by the archival collection. They provide an important mechanism for learning about special collections and archives held by the libraries.
WRLC's Finding Aids Collection contains those finding aids which have been converted to digital form using the Encoded Archival Description (EAD) format. These finding aids are searchable by key word and by title, subject, people, and place. These searches search across all online finding aids as a group, not just within a single finding aid.
Tip: To see a list of the online WRLC Finding Aids, choose the Browse search by Title.
If a WRLC Finding Aid has a corresponding digital collection which can be viewed online, the online finding aid will include a link called "View Digital Collection".
