Library Catalog : The catalog includes descriptions for most of Hagley's library content. It includes descriptions of our research material, including books, manuscripts, corporate records, trade catalogs, photograph collections, motion pictures, audio tapes, and other items.

Finding Aids : Finding aids identify, describe, and list collection contents. Most finding aids contain information about the person or organization who created the collection. Typically, these guides do not describe individual items like our online catalog does. Instead, finding aids describe groupings of materials such as the contents of a folder or a box as well as the organizational context in which these materials are stored.

Museum Collection : The Museum Collection includes a selection of online items from Hagley's collection of over 65,000 artifacts.
