Unlike books, documents do not have tables of contents or indexes. To aid researchers using collections, archivists create finding aids that describe the collections. The finding aid includes:
UNF has digital finding aids in two places, in ArchivesSpace and on the library website.
ArchivesSpace is a database for UNF Special Collections and University Archives finding aids. Clicking on “Home” at any time brings up the search bar.
Not all the finding aids for Special Collections have been added to ArchivesSpace. These finding aids are located on the library website and are accessible from the Special Collections Finding Aids. Please note that the finding aids available on ArchivesSpace are continually being updated. If you access a collection from the library web page and do not find it next time you look, it may have been uploaded into ArchivesSpace. There is a link at the top of the collections list to the UNF ArchivesSpace site.
UNF Digital Commons is a repository that houses digital copies of many items in Special Collections and University Archives as well as born-digital collections. Unlike finding aids, the items in Digital Commons are scans or images of representative items from the collections that can be viewed online. Not all collections are currently available, but new content is continually being added.
These are suggested Internet sites for research on rare books, archival subjects and Northeast Florida history.
