What to transfer to the Archives

The Archives is very interested in documenting administrative and teaching activities at the College.  While your department/program files may appear routine to you, please remember our desire to document the greater history of our institution.  The Archives collects documentation regardless of format: we curate paper, publications, electronic files and media, audio-visual material, posters, etc.    

Some examples below will give you a sense of information that the Archives would like to collect.  (Please also check the What to Weed section for material whose copy of record is archived by another office.)   

·        Meeting minutes: including minutes of any smaller committees in your department/program

·        History of your department/program: especially important if your department/program has undergone a shift in definition or emphasis

·        Faculty files (former faculty): publications, off-prints, correspondence, etc. (see also What to weed)

·        Grants: grant reports, documentation of smaller grants not documented through the Provost's Office (see also What to weed)

·        Syllabi: archiving of syllabi with the Archives has been uneven, we would like to review any syllabi in your files

·        Studies of majors: aggregate data re: characteristics, grades, etc.

·        Tracking of graduates: information regarding careers of graduating majors; this information may not be duplicated by the OCC or the Alumni Office

·        Department outreach and events: files re: lectures, seminar series, conferences, poetry readings, newsletters, etc.

  Still have questions? I am happy to help!
