The Archives program supports teaching, research, and university administration by acquiring, preserving and making available for use the University's permanently valuable corporate records. The Archives documents the wider University community by selectively acquiring the private papers of faculty, staff, students, and university-related groups. It also houses a growing collection of private papers which reflect areas of research interest on campus.
The collection documents a wide variety of subjects including the women's movement, post-secondary education, and local, provincial and national politics. Holdings include photographs, textual records on paper, sound recordings, film and videotapes, electronic records, and architectural drawings.
Our clients include students, faculty, and administrators; scholars and students from other universities; and members of the general public.
