The mandate of Brock University’s Archives & Special Collections is to collect, preserve, display and provide access to records that fulfill the collection needs identified in the following groups: Brock University Archives, Special Collections, Private Archives (Niagara themed), and Autism.

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.

New Acquisitions

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 of Brock University, the Niagara Region and the Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Contact David Sharron, or 905-688-5550 x3264 for more information.

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.
