Archives & Special Collections encourages donations of papers, photographs, ephemera, books, emails, blogs, research, data, audio-visual material, and other items that are related directly to our collections themes including: everything Niagara – past and present, the Autism Spectrum Disorder, Brock University, Freemason works, and rare books.  It is through generous donors that allows the collections to grow and become more comprehensive.  Contact David Sharron, or 905-688-5550 x3264 for more information.

These records are maintained and made available to Brock University staff, students, alumni and to outside researchers in accordance to federal and provincial laws, University records policies and donor agreements. Here is the Collection Policy in its entirety.

All donors must fill out the Deed of Gift form.  If you are eligible for a tax receipt for your donation, the Gift In Kind form must accompany the ‘Deed of Gift’ form.

Faculty Papers Policy

There is a distinction between the faculty papers of Chair or Head of a Department, and faculty papers surrounding teaching, research, or publishing. As part of the University Archives, the former will be collected as they relate to the governance and operation of the University, while the latter will be collected only insofar as they relate to the scope of the Niagara and Autism Collections. There must be significant content within these subjects to be considered.
