University Archives

The McGill University Archives (MUA) acquires, preserves, and makes available to researchers (including students) more than 5,000 metres of records dating from 1797 to the present. These records document McGill University faculty, research, alumni, and student organizations, and certain Montreal-based organizations. Archived media include textual records, photographs, audio tapes, film, video, plans, University publications, and artifacts.

The MUA acquires private records to support University research goals and manages the University's corporate memory and information assets through its records management program. This program regulates the flow of administrative records and protects vital evidence of University functions and activities according to Quebec archives and records legislation.
