Dates of existence



The University of Saskatchewan Archives was established in 1970. Its primary function is to acquire, preserve, and make accessible permanently valuable records of the University: that is, records, in any medium, of continuing administrative, legal, and/or historical value. In addition to administrative records the Archives also collects the private papers of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and University-related organizations and societies; as well as private collections which support the University's research strengths. In 2013, the University Archives and the University Library's Special Collections unit merged to form University Archives and Special Collections.
