Mission Statement

The Archives and Special Collections Department is part of the Northeastern University Libraries. Its 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 historically significant records of the University. The Department also preserves and makes available the records of private, non-profit, community-based organizations that document diverse and under-documented populations.

For information about the collections, see the Collections Overview.
