The Collections

Our collections fall into two categories regarding accessibility, those that are processed and those that are not. If a collection is not processed, it cannot be searched, and generally not used.

To search the materials in our collections, there are three basic paths. The first is to use the Library Catalog. Processed collections should have a record in the catalog, with subject headings.

The second, but easiest way, to find processed manuscripts is through a site-specific web search.

Search within a specific site

Precede your query with site reference. For example:

Finally, it is possible to simply browse through the Collections listed A-Z. Please note that this only lists collections and manuscripts in alphabetical order by first letter of the official name. It’s mostly there for our use and is not very user-friendly.
