Repository code: inndhl
Repository description (CRHP): In addition to an oral history collection, the archive holds a number of recorded speeches, lectures, and discussions related to civil rights.
Repository description (extant): The University Archivist bears the responsibility, by appointment of the President and under the supervision of the Office of the Provost, for the collection and maintenance of the official records and papers of the University as well as other documents of enduring historical value.
The University Archives collects, preserves, and makes accessible the official records of the University of Notre Dame. This historically valuable material documents the academic and administrative responsibilities of the University as well as the experiences of its students, alumni, officers, faculty, staff, and benefactors.
In addition, the University Archives, through its records management program, provides record retention and retrieval services to campus offices. This program ensures that historically valuable records are identified for permanent retention in the Archives and that documents with no historical significance are appropriately destroyed after there is no continuing administrative, fiscal, or legal need for their retention.
The Archives also collects and maintains records, papers, photographs, printed material, and audio-visual material that document the life of the Catholic Church and her people as lived in the American context, and is recognized as one of the nation's foremost archival repositories for the study of American Catholicism. The Archives has collected these materials since the nineteenth century, and the availability of these important scholarly resources at Notre Dame is a major contribution to the academic mission of the University.
