Archives temporary reduced access and services
Patrice Slattery, the University Archivist retired on October 31, 2017. The University Archives will remain open, operating with reduced access and services, while the University works to fill the vacancy. We appreciate your patience during this transition period.
Accessing the Archives
The University Archives will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. Jon McNeill, the Archives Imaging Technician, will continue to welcome visitors to the archives for listening/viewing purposes and to browse the reference materials located in the reading room. We also recommend you take full advantage of the archival resources online as well as the early history of the school, A Passionate Preference, by Leslie Banner, for class projects.
Jon McNeill will continue to fulfill requests for copies of archives photographs and audio recordings. Jon will also do his best to respond to questions for basic historical information relating to the school’s history (i.e. dates, performance history, former faculty and students). There will be a moratorium put on more complex inquiries requiring extended research in the various record collections until the next archivist is in place. Departments are advised to hold records for transfer to the archives until further notice. The archives is unable to accept donations until an Archivist has been hired.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions at any point during this transition.
