Help | Archive hierarchies

Archive descriptions are arranged hierarchically, reflecting the structure and arrangement of each collection. At the top level is the description for the whole collection, which in archive jargon is called a fonds. Note that the number of levels used varies depending on the size and complexity of the archive. Some collections are currently described at fonds level only.

Select your choice from the drop-down box. Possible search values are:

Fonds
- Sub-Fonds
-- Series
--- Sub-Series
---- Sub-Sub-Series
----- File
------ Item
