Mission Statement

The mission of the Aquinas College Archives is to collect, organize, preserve and share material that documents the history of the institution.

Using the Archives

The holdings of the archives include yearbooks, newsletters, magazines, photographs, scrapbooks, audio and video recordings, catalogs, annual reports, and some internal documents, all primarily generated within the college.  There is also a small but growing collection of personal manuscripts donated by alumni.

Access to the collection is by appointment with the archivist who retrieves archival material for patrons from closed stacks areas to be viewed in the archives room.  Archival material does not circulate.  The archivist can assist with research and/or questions about Aquinas College history as time allows. 

The archives are available on an appointment basis to Aquinas Faculty, Staff, and Students. Please e-mail for an appointment. 

Got Stuff?

Please contact the archivist to discuss any potential donations.  If the material is accepted for the archives, the donor prints out the donor form below and completes it.  Arrangements are made for transportation of the material with the completed donor form to the archives.  Donations then become permanent gifts to the archives.
