Copley Library University Archives and Special Collections has now added finding aids to Digital@USanDiego. A finding aid is a researcher’s window into what they can discover in a collection. Finding aids give historical information about the creator of a collection, describe the collection as a whole, and provide a folder listing of the content. The goal is to help researchers know what a collection has to offer and what parts of a collection they might want to view. Much of the material that University Archives houses are records like meeting minutes, newsletters, press releases, photographs, and videos.
Digital@USanDiego now has finding aids for the Associated Students records, the Founders Gallery Exhibit records, the University of San Diego Auxiliary records and many more. Among these records you can find photographs of campus activities, correspondence about campus events, meeting minutes documenting campus discussions, and scrapbooks of university history. More finding aids will be added to Digital@USanDiego regularly. Click on the image above to view finding aids and see what the collections have to offer. Contact University Archives staff if you are interested in seeing what you can discover in a collection.
