Photograph from the collection of Mark LevyThe Queens College Civil Rights Archive Donation

The Department of Special Collections collects, preserves, and makes available for student and scholarly research materials that support the campus-wide curriculum. The Department is especially interested in materials that preserve the history of the Borough of Queens and the New York City region. The collections are particularly strong in capturing the College’s history of excellence in the areas of Performing Arts, Literature, Politics, and Civil Rights.

The Department will not normally acquire materials for which it does not have the resources to house, process, or preserve. Collections should complement and strengthen existing areas of the collection, including our general collections, and/or the College’s academic programs.

For more information, you may also want to see the publication A Guide to Donating Your Personal or Family Papers to a Repository.
