The Villanova University Archives are the official depository for the permanent records of the university. Archival material include manuscripts, printed materials, documents, letters, papers, reports, scrapbooks, photographs, news clippings, posters, recordings, memorabilia / artifacts, and any other permanent documentary materials that are University related. These records are deemed permanent because of their legal, fiscal, administrative, or historical value.
The Archives were established to collect, preserve, appraise, describe, organize and make accessible all permanent records in whatever form made or received in connection with the transaction of university affairs. It is the responsibility of the Archives to document the operations, policies and programs of Villanova University. In effect, the Archives serve as the institutional memory of the University.
