Finding aids are guides to archival collections and can be used to determine which collections are of use to you! Use this page to search and browse the finding aids for University Archives materials. University Archives is organized in record groups and series which are roughly in alignment with the university's organizational structure. Record groups are the major administrative divisions of the overall collection. Record series within these record groups are the discrete, distinct collections.
Record series vary considerably. Some large series consist of fifty or a hundred boxes; other series are only a single sheet of paper. Access to portions of some series is restricted. Most finding aids exist as online. Some collections have additional print inventories of information in the collection control file. The control files are accessible upon request. In addition, the Information File serves as a good starting point for a variety of topics represented in University Archives collections. These finding aids are located in the SC&UA reading room.
As of January 2023, UNI Special Collections & University Archives uses ArchivesSpace to create, manage, and display collection finding aids.
