The purpose of the Virginia Western Archives is to preserve a historical record of the college. Brown Library houses the Archives and maintains an Archives web page with a searchable inventory of the archived items. Examples of materials contained in the archives include: college catalogs from 1966 forward, newsletters, photographs, employee directories, marketing materials, playbills and posters representing 45 years of the VWCC Theatre, committee minutes, and student projects.
We rely on your contributions of historical and new documents and materials to ensure that the Archives reflects an accurate history of the college’s programs and accomplishments. Please remember to send us relevant information on student organizations, pictures from events, newsletters, brochures, reports, and other materials as they are produced.
The Archives may be accessed during the regular library hours of operation. Materials preserved in the Archives are non-circulating, but we can make copies of certain items. For more information about the Archives, please contact Faith Janney (fjanney at virginiawestern.edu or 540-857-6332).
