Manuscript Finding Aids

Below is a list of major manuscript collections, some with links to finding aids.  However, this list is by no means exhaustive; hundreds of smaller collections, not listed here, are indexed and described  in a card catalogue in the department.

Terminology: "Collection" refers to an artificial, often growing body of materials from diverse sources; "papers" refers to materials that were created by one family or individual; "records" refers to official records created and maintained by an organization or business.
