Personal names are listed by surname. Each collection/fonds has a link to a descriptive list finding aid for that collection which is available to download and search (pdf format). The download file link gives the collection reference number e.g."Dowden, Richard U140 List".
DESCRIPTIVE LISTS: The descriptive list describes a collection's background, structure and contents in detail. Within each list are summary descriptions of each document/item/file/series in a collection/'fonds' including the unique reference number of each.
Readers must first obtain the item reference codes from the descriptive lists or catalogue before ordering material in the research room, and when citing material. e.g."U140/J/01/02/1". ( i.e. U140 - Collection code; J - Series; 01 - sub series; 02 - file; 1 - item number.)
