The mission of the Eckerd College Archives is to collect, identify, preserve, and organize items – written, visual, and electronic – related to the history of Florida Presbyterian College/Eckerd College; and, by making these resources available, to educate and inform current and future members of the college community concerning the origins, development, programs, and goals of the College.
Use of the Archives
The Archives collection is considered a “closed stacks” area. Use of the collection will require setting up an appointment with the college’s Archivist.
Policies and procedures for access are under consideration. Items with no access restrictions may not be checked out, but they may be photocopied or scanned to a patron’s e-mail account.
For public use, we have a digital collection containing electronic copies of:
- Historical Eckerd College newspapers from 1960-2009
- Eckerd College newspaper, The Current, from 2009-present
- Eckerd College course catalogs from 1959-2008
- Eckerd College yearbooks from 1964-2002
For faculty use only, we have a digital collection containing electronic copies of faculty newsletters and minutes of Faculty Committee meetings.
These items are accessible via the Library Archive Documents folder in Google Drive. Faculty need to be signed into their Eckerd Google account in order to view the documents.
