Search the Special Collections and Archives of the Mountain West

Many of our partners describe their special collections and archives with the use of "finding aids" that provide a register or inventory of physical collections. Using a common standard called Encoded Archival Description (EAD), organizations place these finding aids online, and MWDL provides a common search of them here.
