The Archives' mission is to systematically preserve materials which document the development and history of Niagara County Community College. To that end, materials that fulfill this criteria are quite broad and include documents as diverse as formal meeting minutes & final reports to posters, flyers, & other ephemeral items.
In particular, we are interested in adding the following items to the collection:
The Archives collects materials from NCCC's founding in 1962 through present day. We would welcome "recent" additions. Receiving materials closer to the time of their creation allows us to gather more contextual information and preserve them better.
Another reason to transfer or donate materials to the Archives is for preservation purposes. The Archives maintain strict environmental and security measures. Materials are kept organized and described for ease of access. We preserve digital files, as well as paper records.
Our goal is to preserve archival materials for research and access long into the future.
As a New York State Community College, NCCC follows the Local Government General Schedule: LGS-1. There is more information on the schedule here: http://www.archives.nysed.gov/records/local-government-record-schedule/lgs-1-title-page
