Roanoke College Archives & Specialized Collections

Roanoke College Archives

The Fintel Library Roanoke College Archives collects and preserves materials pertaining to College and its surrounding area, its faculty, alumni, and its Lutheran heritage.  Items accepted into the Archives may include administrative records and files, formal publications, and realia of the College.  The Library does not seek to purchase nor collect special collections or rare items.  The Library will strive to acquire for the Archives one copy of each monograph for which a current faculty member serves as the primary author or editor for the archives collections.  Personal collections of monographs and journals may be evaluated for acceptance into the collections of the Library and Archives.  General office files of faculty and staff are typically not collected by the Archives.  Materials given to the Archives are evaluated for addition into the collection.  Materials not accepted for addition into the collection will be disposed of in the manner deemed appropriate by the Library and Archives.

Specialized Collections

Fintel Library does not develop specialized collections outside Roanoke College’s educational programs.  Special collections donated to the College but unrelated to this mission should be accompanied by financial support for processing and preservation.  The Library reserves the right to dispose of collections not accepted for addition in the manner that it deems appropriate.
