Finding Aids

The collections housed at Historical Papers include diaries, letters, memoranda, reports, minute-books, press clippings, pamphlets, photographs, drawings, maps, oral interviews, trial transcripts, and financial, legal, and personal documents. They are contained in various formats such as paper-based records, microfiche, microfilm, photographs, slides, negative and positive film, tapes, DVD and CDs, audiovisual formats, and digital formats.

Finding Aids are inventories and guides which list all the items in our archives. The 4 main Guides provide an overview of all collections at the Historical Papers Research Archive. The descriptions are provided on Fonds level.

The Guides can be accessed and downloaded on our digital repository, using this link: http://researcharchives.wits.ac.za/hp
