Finding Aids

You may also browse finding aids on our Collections page.

A finding aid explains the scope and content of an archival collection, and provides historical background about its subject(s). Most aids will also provide a detailed list of series, folders, and/or items in the collection.

Lesley's archives and records collections are grouped according to the office or department that created them.
