Inventories of our collections are available for public view.
Some collection inventories are in a spreadsheet format, listing individual items or folders within a collection.
Other collection inventories are in “finding aid” format. A finding aid is a written guide to a collection held at the Chapel Hill Historical Society, which often includes an inventory of the items in the collection.

Inventories are searchable by keyword. Here is a guide on how to search collection inventories: How to Search Collection Inventories
