Welcome! The mission of Special Collections and College Archives (SPARC) is to foster original research across and beyond the FIT community. To fulfill this mission, it acquires, preserves, and provides universal access to primary research materials -- in their original formats and across many languages and geographical spectra -- and to College records permanently scheduled for retention or deemed to have enduring, historical value created or received in the course of College business. Unit formats include physical, digital, and 3-dimensional examples. All acquisitions support one or more curricula offered at FIT.
