Prior to opening Nixon materials, the staff creates Finding Aids. Finding Aids describe the contents of a collection and often include Folder Title Lists to enable researchers to request specific boxes of material.

  • These are links to only the online Finding Aids. The online Finding Aids do not reflect everything that is available for research in the Nixon Library. Consult the Adobe Acrobat PDFGuide to Holdings for a comprehensive list of processed and unprocessed Library collections, with descriptions and links to finding aids, inventories, and online content.

  • For those collections without finding aids online, detailed Finding Aids, including Folder Title Lists, are available in the Research Room or by request.
