Did you know you can deposit the records of your student club or organization in the Institute Archives? It’s true! We can collect, preserve, and provide access to a wide range of materials documenting your group and its activities. We collect records of enduring value, such as:

• Constitution, bylaws, and other governing documents
• Meeting minutes
• Membership lists
• Correspondence
• Budgets
• Newsletters and other publications
• Items that document events & activities
• Photographs, scrapbooks, etc.

Transferring records to the Archives offers many advantages to student organizations. It helps maintain a historical account of membership and activities in a secure location. We can help organize records so you can easily find what you’re looking for. And we provide ongoing access to club members, historians, and others interested in the organization. It’s safe, it’s easy, and best of all, it’s free!

We would love to help you figure out the best way to preserve your group’s history.

Not willing to part with your records?  Then consider adding material to the RPI Student Life Collection – a collection of pamphlets, posters, programs, brief histories, newsletters, flyers, etc.
