Finding Aids

Finding aids provide background information, descriptions, and inventories for our collections. In addition to those that are available for use in our library, we are working to make finding aids available online as well. Below are finding aids currently available online, and they represent only a small portion of our holdings.  Many of our collections do not have finding aids but please check back often as new finding aids are regularly added.  Information on all of HSP's collections is available in our online catalog Discover. The Balch Manuscript Guide provides links to other online finding aids.
