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 /Adobe Acrobat format). The download file link gives the collection reference number e.g."Dowden, Richard  U140 List".

This index is still in the process of being updated.

USING THE DESCRIPTIVE LIST: A descriptive list describes a collection's background, structure and contents in detail. Within each list are detailed summary descriptions of each document/item/file/series contained within including a unique reference number of each item.

ITEM REFERENCE NUMBERS: Readers can obtain an item's reference number from the descriptive list or online catalogue which is used when ordering material for research, and when citing material in a thesis or publication. An example is "U140/J/01/02/1", where U140 is the collection/fonds code; J - Series;  01 - sub series;  02 - file; 1 - item number.)
