Finding aids provide researchers a way to explore the contents of a collection, helping to quickly identify materials which may be useful to their research. The USC Upstate Archives subscribes to ArchivesSpace, an online, searchable database of locally created finding aids. Finding aids have been generated for a number of collections in the University Archives, and more are being added all the time. Key collections have been highlighted on subpages of this section.
ArchivesSpace is accessible from anywhere you have an internet connection, and does not require any special log-ins or registration.
