Mandates/Sources of authority

Seneca Archives and Special Collections identifies, preserves, and makes available for use the documentary heritage of Seneca Polytechnic (formerly Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology).

This service collects inactive records of long-term value produced by Seneca, as well as the records of individuals and organizations closely associated with Seneca.

Records in our collection include, but are not limited to text, moving images, sound recordings, graphic material, architectural drawings, publications, objects, and more.

Our resources are open to all members of the Seneca community and external researchers for the purposes of research, teaching, publication, or just for general interest.
