How to use the Rutland Historical Society Finding Aids


There are two types of Finding Aids.  The first is for collection material which could include almost anything – letters, documents, drawings, clippings, and much more.  The second is for individual photographic images.  Both types provide for searching by a topic or by a person/family name. 


Topics are hierarchical (up to 3 levels) and can be reached from any of the levels.  For example, Green Mountain College can be found under Schools and Education, Colleges, and Green Mountain College.  You can get to these by clicking on “S”, “C” or “G”.  Or you can browse the index pages and go directly to the indicated page by entering the page number in the box in the toolbar on the top left of the screen and hitting “Enter”.  (Index is not available in the Photo Finding Aids.) A third way is to use the Adobe Reader search.   The Person Finding Aids work the same way, except that there is no topic hierarchy, just the name, ordered by last name.


If you do not find what you are looking for, please use the Contact information to call, email or mail us with your inquiry.  The collection material listings do not yet include all our holdings, and do not go into detail, so even though a topic or person does not appear in these listings, we may still be able to locate material related to your inquiry.  The Photo Finding Aids represent only a very small portion of our photographic images.  They will be expanded as the photos are processed.
