Electronic Access to Archives Finding Aids

The Denver Public Library's Archives Collection comprises material on the American West, particularly Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region; on the twentieth-century environmental conservation movement in the United States; and on the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division of World War II. In addition, the African American Research Library archives provide important documents regarding the integral role and history of the African Americans in the Rocky Mountain West.

Finding aids are detailed guides to primary source material, which provide fuller information than normally contained within catalog records. Although all Archives Collections are cataloged and a brief record is available through the Library catalog, only a portion of the Archives Collection has extensive online findings aids. This site provides links to a portion of the Archives Collection at the Denver Public Library.
