Mission Statement

The Archives and Special Collections Department is part of the Northeastern University Libraries and has two distinct purposes: to document the University and to collect primary source material to support student and faculty research interests. The University Archives' goal is to document the teaching, research, community service, and administrative functions of the University and to document student life. This goal is accomplished by collecting the official records of the University, which are materials in any format that were generated or received by Northeastern's various administrative divisions and academic departments, in the conduct of their business. Special Collections preserves and makes available the records of private, non-profit, community-based organizations that document diverse and under-documented populations.

Description

In the fall of 1998, the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections Department began a two-year project funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission and the Frank M. Barnard Foundation to identify, locate, secure, and make accessible the most important and at-risk historical records of Boston's African American, Chinese, gay and lesbian, and Latino communities. Although the outside funding has been exhausted, the Archives is continuing to preserve and make available the records of social justice organizations that serve these diverse populations. See our website at www.lib.neu.edu/archives for more information about our work.
