What is an Archives?
Archives tend to collect original unpublished material, which is unique and irreplaceable. Essentially they collect the original records of the past. If the records are lost, stolen, or damaged, the information they contain could be lost forever.
Every Archives collects something special. The MSVU Archives specializes in collecting and preserving records that tell the story of the University through the years.
Some examples of archival records include:
· Office records
· Official reports, speeches, hand-books
· Minutes from committees and boards
· University publications, including student publications
