Archives & Special Collections
The Archives & Special Collections of the Bronx Community College Library collects, preserves, and makes available primary and secondary materials that document the history of Bronx Community College.
The Archives’ focus is the history of the College and records the activities of the administration, academic departments, faculty, staff, students, and related organizations of the Bronx Community College and its predecessor institutions.
The Special Collections concentrates on the history of Bronx political culture and public policy discourse.
As a unit of the Library, the Archives & Special Collections supports effective teaching and learning through training students to conduct research using primary source materials, partnering with faculty members to create assignments using primary source materials, and hosting internships in archival theory and practice for students wanting to explore archival work as an interest or career option.
The repository for the College include records from 1957 to present; Board of Trustees minutes, yearbooks, college catalogs, blueprints, photographs, correspondence and office files relevant to the history of the College. The collection also contains the Records of the Hall of Fame of Great Americans, as well as BCC faculty papers.
They are open (by appointment) to CUNY administrators, faculty and other staff members, students, and others outside of CUNY.
