ECASC is a department in the library that documents the history of the College as well as the history of topics and issues that complement the College’s curriculum. Staff members do this by collecting, preserving, and providing access to documents, objects, and artwork that fall under two categories:
- institutional records created by College faculty, staff, student groups, and affiliated organizations; and
- historical collections created by outside individuals, organizations, and groups that focus on such subjects as the history of the College; radio, television, and film; journalism; communication disorders; and comedy in all its forms.
The work of ECASC’s staff members is steered by the belief that the purpose of archives is to allow people to examine and understand both the past and present; archival materials should be accessible to as broad an audience as possible; and historical materials can be used in many different capacities, including research, creative, and personal projects.
For information about accessing our materials, please view our Research Services page.
