Finding Aids for Historical Collections

May 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

LILRC Committee for the Preservation of Local History Presents:
Finding Aids for Historical Collections

Description:

Finding aids are the key to locating archival and other primary source materials.  A finding aid for a specific collection offers a detailed description of the collection’s provenance, scope and content, and how it is finally organized.   This workshop will review the components of a finding aid and offer examples to help you create a template for your current and future collections.  As a tool for yourself and researchers, a finding aid informs those seeking specific information in a collection.  It saves time while informing the public of its existence.

Who should attend:

Anyone seeking to promote the historical/informational value of their institution’s special collections.  This workshop requires some knowledge of arranging and describing archival materials.
