Departmental, Office & Subject Collections

The University Archives houses a broad array of collections that document the policies, strategic plans, programs, and activities of Brandeis University over time. Most of these collections represent the work of University departments or bodies, such as the Board of Trustees records. Others address particular subjects or events, such as the University Architecture collection.

The University Archives and Special Collections Finding Aids Database provides keyword searching of the finding aids (guides) to Departmental, Office & Subject Collections. The Search Page will search the text of all the fields in the finding aids.
