The College Archivist as College Historian: Baruch College Celebrates Its Historical Roots
Roff, Sandra
Journal of Archival Organization, v8 n3-4 p251-259 2010
College and universities were slow to start collecting records relating to the history of their institutions. In the nineteenth and into the twentieth century it was usually a dedicated librarian, administrator, or professor who decided to rescue the history of their school. Educating archivists to assume this role has become a top priority for archival and library professional programs, and today the college or university archivist is anxious to preserve campus history. Using Baruch College of the City University of New York as a model, many tools emerge as viable to help the archivist preserve and promote the history of their institutions. (Contains 19 notes.)
