Contributors to J-SNCA have included both senior and junior members of
the profession as well as archival educators, independent researchers,

meeting user needs through finding aids and other tools. This special
issue is based on a session at the 2010 meeting of SNCA entitled "What
is this document?," which explored the definition of archival finding
aids today. We welcome thought pieces, case studies, practical
experiences, student papers, literature reviews, and conference
