CAMC Finding Aids

Manuscript Collection Guides

Online finding aids represent only a small portion of the entire collection. New finding aids are added as collections are processed.

The College Archivist defines the term manuscript broadly. This is based on Richard Pearce-Moses's definition that "although manuscript literally means handwritten, 'manuscript collection' is often used to include collections of mixed media in which unpublished materials predominate. They may also include typescripts, photographs, diaries, scrapbooks, news clippings, and printed works."
