University Archives: Collection Descriptions

The Delaware State University Archives is home to the historic records of the University community.

What are Finding Aids?

Archival repositories use finding aids to inform researchers about the contents of archival collections and how to access them.  Finding aids are descriptive documents which include a

  • biographical or historical sketch about the subject of the collection,
  • an inventory of the contents in the collection,
  • an administrative history of how the archivist has organized and manages the collection.

The finding aids of the DSU archives are incomplete.  Most of the archival holdings are still being processed by the archivist.  As collections are processed their respective finding aids will be updated.

All of the finding aids are available as full-text searchable PDF documents.

Collection processing is an ongoing effort.  As collections are formally processed and updated, the respective completed finding aids will be published. If your area of interest is not represented here it does not necessarily mean that records pertaining to your search do not exist. Please call us at 302-857-6130 to learn more and speak to Rejoice, the archivist.
