Franco-American Collection

Finding Aid

An overview of the Collection's unpublished holdings (i.e. newspaper clippings, photographs, ephemera) can be found in our updated Finding Aid.

The Finding Aid is organized according to the Library of Congress cataloging system, of which an outline is provided on the first page.  Selecting a subject heading will link to more detailed entries.

Please note that the Finding Aid is not a complete inventory of the Collection; instead it represents a folder-level summary of our holdings, designed to aid researchers.  For more specific inquiries, feel free to contact the Coordinator directly.

For published materials (books, periodicals), please consult the University's URSUS catalog.

Giving to the Collection

Researchers working at the Franco-American Collection.

The operation of the Franco-American Collection, its educational programs and the preservation of its materials are dependent on your generosity. 

Find out more about giving to the Collection through the University of Southern Maine. 

Under "Gift Details," click on "Gifts to specific...".  In the pop-up box, click the first box "Other..." then "Continue." That will take you back to the main form but now you will be able to write in "Franco-American Collection" to direct your donation correctly.
