Collections in the University Archives
Several of our collections have been processed and have finding aids available online for our users to browse. If you are interested in accessing any of these collections, please contact our Archivist, Heidi Benedict, to set up an appointment.
Making a Gift to the Archives
Gifts of materials are an important means of collection building and the Archives is pleased to receive offers of materials from both individuals and institutions. However, the Archives makes every effort to acquire only gifts that are within the scope of its collection development policy and that are not substantially available elsewhere.
The Archivist will appraise potential gift material to identify that which merits permanent preservation in the Archives. The Archives reserves the right to refuse material that does not meet the selection criteria outlined in this collection policy statement. The Archivist will, if required, offer guidance on appropriate repositories for such material.
The Archives will provide for the secure long-term storage of your gift and ensure its accessibility in accordance to established policies. When materials are gifted to the Archives, they become part of the permanent collection and are subject to the same terms and conditions for use and reproduction as other items held there.
