Finding Aids


    
 

Finding aids are descriptive inventories, indexes, or collection guides that provide access to the unpublished materials in the library's Special Collections. These are tools the researcher can use to understand the size, contents, and arrangement of a collection. Diverse collections warrant a variety of finding aids, but most guides will include a general overview, a biographical or historical note, and a detailed description of the collection. Finding aids will be added to the website as they become available.

 

If you would like further assistance, contact librarian/archivist Michelle Tom at (860) 688-3813 or by email at mtom@windsorhistoricalsociety.org.
