Welcome! The mission of Special Collections and College Archives (SPARC) is two-fold. Special Collections acquires, preserves, and provides access to a wide range of primary research materials in their original formats and across many languages and geographical spectra; formats include print and digital forms. All acquisitions support one or more curricula offered at FIT. The College Archives acquires, preserves, and provides access to College records permanently scheduled for retention or deemed to have enduring, historical value created or received in the course of College business. Archival records can be created or received by administrators, staff, faculty, and students. In fulfilling this mission SPARC supports myriad goals in and across FIT units as well as the research of those from outside the FIT.
