A finding aid is a description of of records that allows clear access points to the collection for researchers. An archival collection may consist of many containers (folders, boxes, cartons, etc.) that span topics, dates, and people. Archivists create finding aids as a way to help researchers facilitate discovery within a collection. The Bancroft Library makes our finding available on the Online Archive of California, a central repository for finding aids from cultural heritage institutions across California.
