The task of finding materials relevant to your research can be daunting to first-time and infrequent users of archives. But every collection held by an archive will have a corresponding finding aid, which is the primary resource for identifying collections you want to examine and the location of specific items within the collection. Please read this brief finding aid explanation: A guide to using archival finding aids in Special Collections
The Collection consists of approximately 90 books with the majority being first editions (with some titles in multiple copies) as well as special and occasional publications. Additionally, the Collection includes copies of periodicals where Welty’s short stories and other writings first appeared. Currently, the Collection is being cataloged and organized, and not all items are identified in Walker Library's JEWL Search. Please inquire at Special Collections, room 444.
