Publish Finding Aids With Durable, Quality Materials

Don't withhold Finding Aids from other researchers! Many libraries, archives, museums and service/support organizations spend lots of time and effort in producing finding aids for a particular genealogy or research collection. The problem this presents occurs when only one copy is produced to place in a single public-access research area. Professional researchers as well as genealogists of all types should consider producing finding aids and research tools for all repositories and individuals that would benefit! Little explored options to enlarge accessibility include trading with other research collections for materials they produce.

Once a finding aid is complete, for a library or archive collection, the hard part is over. In addition to being an significant resource for your repository, it is a valuable resource for other researchers as well as fundraising. However, the world of publishing can be confusing - let us help.
