Record Retention

Old Mercyhurst Maps

The Mercyhurst Archives preserve the institutional history of Mercyhurst University. The Mercyhurst Archives accept a broad range of materials, ranging from student and faculty work to administrative documents to photographs capturing campus life. Materials can either be personal or professional in nature. Examples of professional materials include published and unpublished faculty scholarship, records from campus administration, and meeting minutes from Faculty Senate and other organizations.  Personal materials that the Archives will accept include calendars, diaries, and correspondence, as long as these materials are related to the life and history of Mercyhurst University. Photographic and audiovisual materials documenting the personal or professional activities of the Mercyhurst community are welcome.  

This webpage will continue to be updated as a comprehensive records retention policy is developed.
