Visiting the Archives

The archives is staffed part time, so making an appointment in advance is required.  Contact the archivist to arrange a visit.

We are open to both members of the college and the public. You may be asked to fill out a brief survey during your visit in order to help make future visits a better experience.

Researchers are permitted to bring with them pencils, notebooks, and laptops or tablets.  The archivist will retrieve materials for you, and a workspace will be provided within the archives.  Permission to take photographs will be evaluated by the archives staff.

THIS MONTH - September 2015

The HCC Archives is Currently Seeking Donations for Video Playing Equipment

As you can see below, we have tons of of great historical audiovisual media - everything from recordings of lectures, entertainment events, award ceremonies, and more.

However, while its easy for researchers to come by and view VHS and DVD media, we have other valuable information on harder-to-come-by formats, like Beta and U-matic.  Do you have, or do you know of anyone who my have an old Beta or U-matic player collecting dust?  Consider donating it to the HCC Archives where it will be put to good use!
