Archives and Special Collections

University Archives

Documenting the history of Salve Regina's teaching, activities, and operations, the University Archives collects and makes available materials created by the University's students and alumni, faculty, and staff. University units deposit their permanent records to the Archives for arrangement, description, and access. For more information on this process, please see the Records Transfer page.

Digital Collections
  • Archives Photographs: Hosted in Shared Shelf, this collection includes photographs and video from Salve Regina’s history. The Archives will add media as it is processed, digitized, and described.
  • Digital Commons: Archival and manuscript collections in the Salve Regina institutional repository.
  • Dissertations and Honors Theses: The University Archives keeps print copies of Ph.D. dissertations and select theses from the undergraduate Pell Honors Program. Online versions of a selection of theses and dissertations can be found in this collection in Digital Commons.
  • Yearbooks: This collection contains digital copies of Regina Maris, the yearbook from 1951 through 2004.
Finding Aids
Finding aids for some of the archives and special collections are available in Rhode Island Archival and Manuscript Collections Online (RIAMCO). Most of the archives and collections do not have finding aids online.
Archive Records
The University Archives are arranged in the following records groups. This is not a complete records hierarchy, but is meant to serve as a general overview of the Archives. Missing or out-of-sequence numbers indicate placeholders, confidential records, or are left over from record groups changing to reflect reorganization of University structures. The Archivist can provide the most recent and complete record group arrangement upon request. Digital materials are linked in the hierarchy below:
