University Archives & Special Collections
Research & Materials
- Finding Aids and Container Lists: Finding aids are detailed inventories of the collections and records including creator history, content list, dates, years, and scope. Container lists include what is in the collection with less detail.
- Search the Archives: This searches multiple collections and records using keywords, which can be used instead of finding aids and container lists. Please note many of the collections are not included, but more collections are being added.
- Digital Collections: Digital Collections contain a selection of the archives holdings that are scanned by archives or are born digital. The digital collections are rarely comprehensive, but are curated materials from select collections located in University Archives & Special Collections. Comprehensive collections include some university publications.
- Locating Primary Sources for Research Papers: These sources require researchers to understand using catalogs, finding aids, and digital materials for best access.
