ARCHIVAL COLLECTIONS: FINDING AIDS
An archival collection of records is an accumulation of materials either brought together on the basis of a common characteristic such as the subject or medium, or created by an individual, family, organization or business. A finding aid assists researchers in the use and understanding of that collection. It contains information about the collection including administrative history or biographical notes; the scope of the collection, including size, subjects, media, organization and arrangement; acquisition, provenance, and processing; and an inventory of its contents.
