University Collections & Records Archive

The University Collections & Records Archive collects materials of enduring historical value and certain non-current records that document both the administrative activities of the State University of New York at Fredonia and its overall history.


Please note that not every category listed below is represented with a Finding Aid; the departmental lists below are intended to structure and organize unprocessed collections materials and expected acquisitions.

The wide variety of University Collections focuses on documenting the history of SUNY Fredonia as an institution and its growth and development as a State University of New York campus from its humble beginnings as a local academy.  Our University Collections feature materials from alumni, faculty, and student organizations of the Fredonia Normal School, Fredonia Academy, and SUNY Fredonia throughout its rich history and demonstrate how the Fredonia Experience has changed their lives.  

Decisions on collection development in the Records Archive are informed by the SUNY Records Retention and Disposition Schedule, as well as by the input of key university departments and individuals.  

To view a collection's finding aid, please click on the blue collection title and the finding aid will open in a new window or tab. 

If the collection title is not blue, this means there is not currently a finding aid available.
