Archives

The York College Archives are located in the Library and are accessible only by appointment with the archivist.

In the Archives are both official and non-official York records, such as yearbooks, bulletins, course listings, Senate and committee minutes, reports, photographs, and realia. The Library's collection of rare books are also housed in the Archives, along with the Bassin Collection of Hebraica and Yiddica.

There is an ongoing project to digitize archival materials, which will be available on both the Archives website as well as through Academic Works, the CUNY institutional repository. Some materials are also being posted at the CUNY Digital History Archive, and a few photographs were uploaded to the Pictures of CUNY section of the CUNY Academic Commons.

For access to the York College Archives, please contact Prof. Scott Sheidlower, 718-262-2017.
