Archives (Shaw-Olson Center for College History)

[Faculty Handbook Category #1]

The Archives of St. Olaf College, housed in the Rølvaag Memorial Library, consist of non-current materials that record and exhibit the history and life of the college.

Periodically, the archivist requests faculty, administrators, and staff members to deposit appropriate materials in the archives. The archivist, or a member of the archives staff, together with the faculty or staff member involved, shall select the materials that shall be transferred to the archives. Materials not selected will be destroyed.

Materials may not be removed from the archives for any purpose except by the written approval of the president or the archivist. The record of such approval and a signed receipt for materials withdrawn shall be kept by the archivist.
