Archival Finding Aids
The Computer History Museum's collection holds many unique collections of unpublished primary source materials. Finding aids describe these collections in detail, providing information about the origin of the collection; a brief biography or historical sketch of the collection creator; information on the arrangement of the collection; a "scope and content note" describing the intellectual content; and a "container list" listing the contents of either folders or boxes within the collection.
Keyword searching across the content of all finding aids and other museum materials is also available through our collections database search. We also post our finding aids on the Online Archive of California (http://www.oac.cdlib.org/). The OAC brings together historical materials from institutions across California allowing a federated subject search across many repositories within the state.
