Use the Archives and Special Collections finding aids to research our collections. A finding aid is a descriptive tool that provides an overview of the scope, contents, arrangement, origin, and historical context of materials in a collection. Finding aids can help you determine whether or not a collection is relevant to your research needs.

Use finding aids to learn more about rare books and literary manuscripts, sources for Middletown research, historic photographs and local history resources, Ball State's history, and Indiana's built environment.

Our finding aids are fully searchable using Archives Search or this Custom Google Search.
