Most sections of the Collection are indexed, although not all indexes are yet online. If you are interested in a section and cannot see the index online, please ask. Indexes are not itemised lists but are intended to show the type of material included in its section and its arrangement. In some cases, they are the only finding aid. However, many sections are also catalogued and digitised.
All sections of the Collection give insights into social history, but one broad theme (Political, Religious, Social and Economic History) is of particular relevance to historians.
