About the Archives

Southern New Hampshire University’s Archives promotes the mission and history of the University by collecting, storing, preserving, organizing, cataloging, and providing access to the records of enduring value that document the institution, its people, culture, administration, curricula, programs, and departments.

Accessing the Digital Archives

Access to digitized material from the Southern New Hampshire University Archives is available through two online platforms. The Academic Archive This link opens in a new window provides access to academic material and publications, while the SNHU Archives on Omeka This link opens in a new window provides access to content related to SNHU history.

Access to the collection is available by appointment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 am to 5:30 pm, and at other times by special arrangement. Researchers and visitors are welcome to view the collection. Please email to request an appointment. Be sure to tell us a little about your research interests so that we may prepare for your visit.

Donating Materials

The Archives is a growing collection and is actively accepting donations of appropriate materials. While we cannot take absolutely everything, the following are examples of the types of items we collect:

  • Published scholarship produced by any faculty or staff member of the University
  • University organizational records such as meeting minutes, course catalogs, planning documents, press releases, or official correspondence.
  • University promotional materials such as flyers, newsletters, event programs, and magazines.
  • Photos, meeting minutes, and other information about student life and activities.
  • Personal papers, photographs, professional files, scrapbooks, and other materials from prominent University administrators, faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
  • Materials not directly related to SNHU that will have research value to the SNHU community.
