Established in 1988, The Carnegie Mellon University Archives (Hunt Library, 2nd floor) documents the history of the University from its founding in 1900 up to the present day. A multimedia repository, the Carnegie Mellon University Archives preserves and provides access to primary sources via digitization as well as hands-on access, and answers queries via email, phone or face to face.
The Archives serves as the collective memory of the university and, as such, contains records and personal papers generated by faculty, academic departments, administrative offices, and campus organizations which have historical or administrative importance.
The University Archives has two primary responsibilities:
- Collecting and preserving these collections and making them available for reference and research.
- Providing useful documentation of the policies, people, aims, achievements, and events of the university.
