Women's History Sources: University Archives: Records and Collections (Rutgers University Librares: Special Collection and University Archives)
The Rutgers University Archives serves as the final repository for the historical records of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Its primary purpose is to document this history of the University – its programs, services, and community members – and to provide source material for interested persons who seek to evaluate the impact of the University and its members on the history of American social, cultural, and intellectual development. Because the University Archives documents the diversity of Rutgers University in a comprehensive manner, it houses many extensive collections with varied provenance, functions and formats. These collections, which are not separately listed in this guide, also provide documentation on women at Rutgers. They include the Photograph Collection, the Vertical File, Rutgers Publications, Annual Reports, and Minutes. General subjects covered by the collections, which span all colleges and units, are: teaching and classroom activities, faculty and staff, alumni, academic departments, alumni events, special events and community programs, commencement, class portraits, buildings and grounds of all the campuses (New Brunswick, Newark and Camden), athletics, student organizations and student life. Specific student life content includes dances, New Jersey College for Women (now Douglass College) student organizations, and Queens Players (a coed theater group) to name a few. These collections, which cover all aspects of the University, go well beyond written documentation and encompass the wide spectrum of audio-visual materials including ephemera, photographs or illustrations, broadsides, etc.
