Finding Aid is Up

Our finding aid for the JACL Redress Video Collection is up on the Online Archive of California.  Very exciting news!

What’s a finding aid, you ask?

A finding aid is a type of record that gives information about a collection– what’s in it, how big it is, what it’s about, where it came from– all the things that you want to know when looking for primary sources!  It can also provide an inventory, which is very helpful to researchers to locate something in particular.

We hope that researchers find our finding aid, and then come to us for research.  Our holdings aren’t getting their worth if people aren’t viewing them!  Archives aren’t dusty records that are kept in a dark, hidden place.  They’re available for people to view, study, and use.  Check out our finding aid here: JACL Redress Video Collection Finding Aid
