Penn State University Archives Mission Statement

The Penn State University Archives is a collecting unit within the Eberly Family Special Collections Library dedicated to documenting the history of the University as an institution and member of the land-grant, higher education community. The archives supports teaching, research, service, and administration by developing and managing archival, manuscript, pictorial, cartographic, audiovisual, electronic, print and object collections. These resources have been judged to be of permanent value in recording the history of the University in its various roles and contexts. In addition, the archives also documents the careers and activities of prominent faculty and alumni, supports an active records management program, manages the sports history archives of the University’s intercollegiate athletics programs, and collects materials related to the history of the Centre County region.
