Finding Aids

Archival File Box

A finding aid is a document containing information about a specific group of items within a library or archive, and is intended to assist researchers in determining whether materials within that group are relevant to their research. The content of a finding aid may differ depending on the type of material it is describing. 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.

Special Collections at the Health Sciences Library is the repository for several groups of archival records for which finding aids have been, or are in the process of being, created. In addition, the HSL has chosen to create finding aids for certain other sets of materials within Special Collections to provide a more detailed description of those collections than is typically found in the online catalog.
