Answer:

Books and maps located in DePaul’s Special Collections are keyword searchable through DePaul’s Library Catalog. To browse a selection of these resources by subject, use the Rare Book and Map Resources LibGuides.

Archival collections, composed of manuscript papers or organizational records, are searchable by tools called finding aids. Each archival collection has a finding aid that provides a description of the collection and its contents, organized into numbered boxes and folders. PDFs of our finding aids are browsable by subject within our University, Vincentian, and Community collecting areas through our Finding Aids and Guides portal.
