The Bentley Historical Library has compiled a number of subject guides and indexes covering variety of topics. Topics chosen for subject guides often represent strengths in the Bentley collections or commonly-researched subjects. Many of these subject guides have been adapted and updated for online access from printed publications produced by Bentley staff.
Many of the subject descriptions highlight details of a collection that focus on that specific subject area. Thus, researchers may find more subject-specific collection descriptions here than what may be described in the MIRLYN library catalog or the finding aids. The subject guides are intended to be used in conjunction with the finding aids, as the finding aids provide a more detailed box listing. If a collection has an online finding aid, links have been provided.
