Transferring College Records

The College Archives collects, stores, and, when appropriate, makes available the records, publications, correspondence, and other materials--in both paper and electronic formats--related to and created in the course of the official activities of Simmons College offices and officers.   These materials are the property of Simmons College and often have considerable historic value beyond their current administrative uses. 

The staff of the College Archives is available to consult with College administrators and staff to determine the permanent fiscal, legal, historical and other research value of any Simmons College records.Archives staff will arrange for the systematic transfer of records to either the College Archives, an appropriate record storage area, or disposal. 

The College Archives acknowledges that many records produced by departments may be of a confidential nature or subject.  Appropriate restrictions on access will be determined by Archives staff and administrative officers and enforced by Archives staff.
