Records management and collecting policies

The mandate of the Archives is to acquire original archival materials that document all programs and activities of the University or that enhance its teaching and research programs. The University Archives acquires three major categories of materials: 1) the official records of the University, including those created by the Board of Governors, Senate, University committees, faculties, departments, and administrative offices, 2) materials documenting the wider University community including the private papers of groups such as the Faculty Association, Student Society, University labour unions, and the private papers of prominent faculty, staff and students and, 3) private historical research collections. The Archives also holds the original copies of all theses and dissertations approved by the University.
