Archival collections are unique in that they can range in size from one folder to hundreds of boxes. Because archival collections can be complex, archivists describe their contents in "finding aids", also called collection guides. The guides are called finding aids because they help researchers find items of interest within a collection.
The search box at the top of this page allows you to keyword search the finding aids created for archival collections in the Special Collections repository. You can also see a list of finding aids for the Washington State Jewish Archives collections by clicking the link below.
