Transferring Records

The College Archives serves as the institutional memory of the College by preserving a variety of records and materials. When allowed to accumulate in closets, basements, and corners, records are inaccessible and can easily be lost or destroyed. But, if records of permanent historical, administrative, fiscal and/or legal value are transferred in an orderly way, the College Archives can provide safe storage, quick retrieval of files when needed, and assistance with information or research requests.
