The mission of the Archives and Special Collections department is to engage students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the local and global community with primary resources and artifacts. Our objective is to instill a sense of pride and knowledge about Stevens Institute of Technology and its rich heritage and legacy, which includes the history of the Stevens family. Furthermore, Archives and Special Collections will preserve, arrange and describe our unique historical collections and artifacts as they continue to grow and become more accessible to a greater audience. 


Scope of Collections Policy:   

The scope of collections policy is a tool used to guide Special Collections and Archives in new accessions, and build upon our collections.   It is our objective to focus on areas of historical research and artifacts that complement, support and expand our existing collections in a logical manner, and provide a balance between our available resources and commitments. It is also important to anticipate future research needs, and historical trends.
