Finding Aids: Special Collections & University Archives

Portland State University Library

Finding aids are guides that help researchers understand the contents of an archival collection, its background or provenance, and how it is organized. At Portland State University Library, our finding aids range from brief descriptions to detailed inventories. Our goal is to make core information for a collection available as soon as possible. As opportunity allows, our finding aids will be expanded to best serve our researchers. If you need more information on any of our listed collections, please do not hesitate to contact us.


For a full list of all our described collections, please browse Collections and select "View All".


Archives and Special Collections materials are non-circulating and available by appointment only.
