RIT Archives - RITpedia

RIT Archive Collections is located on the third floor of Wallace Library. It is the official repository for historically valuable records of the university. A broad range of materials, from presidential papers and departmental records to photographs and art works document RIT's history since 1829. The collections provide a view into the university's unique role as an educational institution and reveal RIT's significant part in the story of Rochester's growth.[1]

Museum studies students in the College of Liberal Arts work with these archival collections in classes and occasionally curate exhibitions.[2]
