Repository description (extant): The University Archives is a unit of the St. John's University Libraries, and houses the administrative records of the University; historical materials that relate the St. John's campuses to their neighboring communities; and historical materials dealing with the history of Catholic higher education in New York City. The Archives also collects the papers and memorabilia of faculty members and holds an eclectic collection of historical documents and photos.
The Archives holds 1,300 cubic feet of records, manuscripts, video reels and cassettes, and about 9,000 positive and negative photoprints, the bulk of which are post-World War II. Approximately 50% of the records have been arranged, described and preserved according to archival standards. The Archives has unpublished finding aids, inventories for manuscript and photo collections and subject or survey guides to most collections.
