The Historical Collections of the Health Sciences Library contains archival collections that document the history of SUNY Upstate Medical University. These collections may be the records of departments or units of SUNY Upstate or they may be papers of a particular individual.
Collections that have been processed have an EAD (Encoded Archival Description) finding aid available online. These finding aids contain information about the entity or individual that created the records, how the records are organized, and what information they contain. Usually, a detailed collection inventory is also provided and this inventory may contain digitized materials.
Many of the archival collections are unprocessed and do not have a finding aid. If you are interested in any of these materials please contact the curator.
For information on what materials are appropriate for donation to the Historical Collections please see the Collections Policy . If you are interested in making a donation please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
