What are finding aids?
Finding aids are records that describe collections and what they contain.
People who work at an institution that owns collections write the finding aids, and the
institution contributes finding aids to ArchiveGrid. We provide links to websites
for the departments which manage their institution's finding aids, so you can contact
them when you read a finding aid and want more information about something inside
the collection that interests you.
What is the difference between archives, manuscripts and special collections?
