Archival finding aids
Below are the finding aids for all processed collections at the UHEC Archives.
Unlike in library cataloging, archives do not attempt to create a complete inventory of all of the items held in the repository. Instead, materials are grouped into "collections", which are typically records of an organization, family, or individual that have been created or accumulated through the course of their lives or activities.
Each collection is described in a "finding aid", which contains critical information about who created or assembled it, their biographical and historical context, the types of materials present, the date rage of record keeping that gave rise to the collection, the physical extent of the records (in linear feet), the language(s) of the materials, and how the collection is organized (its "arrangement"). Following that is administrative information, followed by an inventory of the boxes and folders that contain the materials, possibly with additional description and other details.
If you have any questions about the materials, or how to interpret a finding aid, please feel free to contact archives@UkrHEC.org
