About the Archives

Salve Regina's University Archives document the history and heritage of the institution. These records include administrative and departmental records, such as correspondence, reports, photographs, publications, yearbooks, as well as materials related to the student experience at the university.

The Special Collections consists of rare books and discrete collections from outside the university, containing items that have significance to the university, its individuals, and its programs. The collections include rare and special books as well as periodicals, pamphlets, ephemera, and manuscripts. Some collecting concentrations are faculty publications, material related to Newport and our Gilded Age mansions, and books related to the Religious Sisters of Mercy, our founding order.

Researchers may visit the Archives in person by appointment.
