Wells College Archives and Rare Book Collection: Archives Collections

What is a Finding Aid?

Finding Aids are documents archives use to describe their collections, so that users can find items of interest easier. Finding Aids will contain information such as the contents of a collection and their location (such as box or folder numbers), as well as the size of a collection and background information about the collection.

If you find a collection that you believe may be useful to your research, click on the finding aids below to review the finding aid. Finding aids are also available on our website.
