University Archives

The Mount Archives is the central repository for both corporate and non-corporate (personal, faculty, staff, and organizational) archival records of Mount Saint Vincent University.  The Archives collects, arranges, describes, and preserves non-current records which document the history of Mount Saint Vincent University, its administration, faculty, staff, and alumnae.  Transferring non-current and inactive records from your unit to the University Archives ensures the storage of historically significant records to be preserved for future generations of researchers.
