Administrative history

The University Archives was officially established in April of 1994, as an administrative unit of the Board of Governors, culminating nearly 13 years of planning. In 1981, a Committee on Archives had been established and the following year an Archives Policy was approved by senior management. The Committee, however, did not meet for the first time until 1994, and they issued a revised Archives Policy in June of 1995. This Policy states that the "mission of the Archives is to effectively and efficiently manage the records of the university, and to preserve the university's corporate memory."1 "In support of this mission, the University Archives has a mandate to acquire, preserve, and make available corporate and non-corporate archival records of Carleton University." Past Chief Officers were Sheila Powell, University Archivist from 1996 to 1994, and Jay Atherton, 1994 to 1998. Currently the Chief Officer is Patti Harper, Archivist with the Administrative Officer being Barb Steele, AB606.
