Abstract

This article describes an in-house collaborative partnership that uses the World Wide Web to provide access and value to manuscript collections from university library online catalogs and Archives & Special Collections department Web pages. Collaboration among the archivist, the original cataloger, and a reference librarian resulted in a cataloging template for collection-level bibliographic records. The process for formulating a record is given, as are methods used to establish Web-based finding aids in Hyper-Text Mark-up Language (HTML) and the digitization of existing finding aids.
