the new version of the Yale Finding Aids Database.

The Yale Finding Aids Database, which has been online since May 1997

Search functions remain the same, while the redesign
of the new site offers improved explanatory sections.
The new site is built on XML, with deliverable files output in HTML
(hard-coded), so that any JAVA-enabled HTML web browser can be used
to view finding aids. More information on our processes can be found at:
