Finding aids are navigational tools for archival collections. Archival collections, the papers of individuals and organizations, can sometimes be difficult to use – they may be so large that they fill dozens of boxes or so disorganized that gathering material on related topics is impossible. A good finding aid will help researchers focus on the materials of most value to their project. We encourage Stark Center researchers to start with a thorough review of the relevant finding aid then contact us about using any material identified in the review.
Below are the finding aids for the Stark Center collections that have received an archivist’s appraisal, processing and description. You may immediately view and download the Finding Aid or click on the collection name for a summary of the collection.
