Search Help

A finding aid is an inventory, or research guide, to an archival or manuscript collection.

The finding aid search on the Archives and Special Collections home page allows you to search the full descriptions of our collections, and includes both University Archives and our local history collections.

  • Only processed collections have finding aids.  For a list of unprocessed collections, view the By Subject page.

The NU Photos search allows you to search digitized historical photographs of Northeastern University, a growing collection of images relating to academics, athletics, campus, people, and events at Northeastern from 1902 to the present.
