A collection of documents together provides context and insight into the past. The Trentoniana Department contains manuscript materials that are in various stages of organization. Some collections have finding aids to help researchers in the navigation of files. Their purpose is to provide information about the creation, context, arrangement, and content of these collections, as well as the information necessary for users to identify and request portions relevant to their research. These finding aids vary in length and detail, but their common purpose is to describe and make accessible these collections. Finding aids will be posted below as manuscript materials are processed. There are also smaller collections consisting of only a file or two that are listed with brief descriptions here [coming soon]. Also consult the library’s general online catalog for individual items.
