Special Collections & College Archives

Whether operating on-campus or remotely, the mission of Special Collections and College Archives (SPARC) remains the same; to foster original research across and beyond the FIT community by acquiring, preserving, and providing universal access to primary research materials including College archival records. Unit materials include physical, digital, and 3-dimensional examples. All acquisitions support one or more curricula offered at FIT; our user community is as diverse as the content on our shelves and all are welcome.

To make an appointment, please write to [email protected] or call (212) 217-4385.
