Finding Aids Index updated April 2015
Finding aids have been created for each collection that is housed on the archives floor of the PCGS Library.  These finding aids, listing the contents of each collection, help the researcher find information without having to go through a collection paper by paper.  Each page, book, or item in the collection is given a folder and/or item number. The collections are open to researchers.  We will be happy to make copies for you. 

Please email us your request with the following information: collection name, folder number, item number.  

We will not copy complete collections.
