߲Ƶ Archives Open House at Reunion 2017
Home > Library & Archives > Archives



The Archives serves the staff, students, graduates and faculty of ߲Ƶ, as well as outside researchers, by identifying, acquiring, documenting, preserving and making records of enduring value to accessible to our community.

The new Archives opened in the summer of 2017. Housed in the old Library quarters on the lower level of the main building, the new Archives provide much-needed archival storage space, a designated reading room for researchers (The Virginia and Peter McLaughlin Room for Archival Study), and a new exhibit space to showcase Trinity’s treasures. The new archives, including the compact storage area, features proper temperature and humidity controls in order to better preserve Trinity’s historical objects. A public hallway (gallery area) features four beautiful, large cases that will display a variety of exhibits of pieces from Trinity’s archives.

We hope the new archives will encourage student use, facilitate scholarship and provide a focal point to inform visitors, students and alumni about the people, buildings and events that shaped ߲Ƶ.
