The University Archives acquires two major categories of records under its acquisition mandate.
1. The University Archives is the repository for the corporate records of the University of Calgary. The Archives’ primary responsibility is to acquire and preserve the official records of the University, in all formats, which contain continuing administrative, legal or historical value. Records created, received, and accumulated by the governing bodies of the University, and by University committees, faculties, departments and administrative units are included under this mandate.
2. The Archives selectively acquires records that document the wider University community and which reflect the academic and cultural heritage of the institution. These records include the private papers of groups such as the Faculty Association, the Students’ Union, student and social clubs, and the personal papers of prominent faculty, staff, and students.
The Uniiversity Archives is governed by the following policies:
