The College Archives serves the Davidson College community in the preservation and administration of institutional records and manuscript collections. The primary purpose of the Archives is to collect, preserve, maintain and make available institutional records of administrative, legal, fiscal or historical value. The Archives also serves as a repository for manuscript collections which are related to the College and the town of Davidson, or relevant to the College's curricula. In conjunction with the preservation of historically valuable records, the Archives administers the College's records retention program overseeing the offsite storage, reference use of inactive records, and timely destruction of outdated records. The department was renamed Archives, Special Collections and Community ("ASCC") in July 2019.
