The George Eastman Museum finding aids are discovery tools that enable users to access unique primary resources housed in the museum’s collections. In addition to providing the researcher with an inventory of a particular collection’s contents, a finding aid also provides information about its structure and the context in which the materials it comprises were created. The Eastman Museum follows the standards recommended by Describing Archives: A Content Standard.
Available finding aids are linked below. Each finding aid is available as an EAD/XML document or PDF, which can be downloaded by clicking the appropriate button at the top of the individual finding aid pages. Finding aids for more collections held by the Eastman Museum will be added to this page on a continual basis.
For more information about how to access the materials these finding aids describe, please contact us. Select the main collection area from the Area of Interest menu, and in the comment section, provide a brief summary of the materials you would like to access along with the items’ box and folder numbers.
