FIT Library’s Department of Special Collections and FIT Archives mission is dual-fold. The Special Collections division acquires, preserves and provides access to a wide range of primary source research materials in original formats from around the world. All acquisitions support one or more of the curricula offered at FIT. Similarly, the College Archives division acquires, preserves and provides access to College records permanently-scheduled or of enduring value created in the course of College affairs by administrators, staff, faculty, and students. The effort to archive these materials supports a broad spectrum of goals that spans the FIT community and beyond.
