RIT Archives

The RIT Archive Collections serves as the official repository for university records with historical, administrative and legal value. The department provides the university with an institutional memory, ensuring that a well-rounded view of RIT's unique history, from major decisions made by the trustees to student events, has adequate documentation. Holdings include: 

  • physical and digital administrative files
  • publications
  • photographs
  • audiovisual materials
  • artifacts and memorabilia

Archival collections are described in finding aids, which are keyword searchable.
