The library recently launched an online database containing finding aids for many collections held at Northwestern University Library. Join us as Jason Nargis, Manuscripts Librarian and Julie Patton, Digital Projects Librarian, give an overview of the tool and answer questions you may have.
 
More about online finding aids
Non-circulating archival and manuscript collections are described by detailed guides referred to as “finding aids”. The finding aids in this database describe archival and manuscript materials held by various Northwestern University libraries. Information regarding content, historical context, creation and arrangement of a collection can be found in these finding aids.
 
Collections represented by finding aids in this portal are housed in the following libraries:
Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections
Galter Health Sciences Library
Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies
Music Library
Northwestern University Archives
Pritzker Legal Research Center
Northwestern University Transportation Library

These archives include diverse materials such as personal papers, literary drafts, research materials, correspondence, drawings, photographs, scripts, posters, audio recordings, musical scores, ephemera, and more.
