A followup to my question on citing archival resources. The data on our PDF finding aids is being transferred to Archives Space and although I can currently still get the PDF of a finding aid it may be taken offline someday. For example, this finding aid has had all of its data transferred and so its PDF is not available to the public.


How would I cite something from this? (Practically, there’s nothing to cite here except for the fact he’s a collector, so I doubt I’ll be able to create an actual name authority for the person, but for the purposes of the question let’s pretend there is.)
