Collection descriptions, or finding aids, provide information about the creation, historical context, arrangement, and content of archival and manuscript collections as well as information to help users identify and request the portions relevant to their research. Since the finding aids draw from the partner repositories they will vary in style, depth of detail, and amount of materials covered, but their common purpose is to describe and enable access to archival and manuscript collections.

The images which include photographs, documents, government records, manuscripts, pamphlets, ephemera and other materials reflect the rich primary source materials held by the project partners. Through this project these resources have been brought together around a topical theme or by holding repository and made available with accompanying descriptions.
