College Archives

The Genesee Community College Archives is located in room D176 in the Alfred C. O'Connell Library.

The diverse Archives collection includes yearbooks, student newspapers, photographs, college catalogs, graduation programs, administrative reports, Board of Trustees minutes, student-created publications such as creative writing booklets, and a myriad of other documents produced by or about the college. A highlight is the scrapbook collection (1963 to present) which outlines the history of the college as documented through local newspaper clippings. Early scrapbooks also contain special first photographs of the college and documents including letters from the community endorsing the establishment of the college.

Archive materials provide a wonderful historical resource for the college community, but may be unique and irreplaceable, therefore they do not circulate and may be viewed only with the assistance of library staff. For inquiries regarding materials available, please contact Cindy Hagelberger or Cindy Francis.
