Welcome to Archives and Records Management

Supporting the University in its records management, compliance with Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy legislation, and maintenance of its historical Archives.

Notice of Suspension of Reference Services:

Due to scheduled renovations to our storage vault, reference services will be suspended from Monday, January 21, 2019 to Monday, May 6, 2019. This includes use of the Archives reading room, access to archival holdings, and digital reproduction requests. Reference inquiries may be made by email (archives@sfu.ca), but please be advised that archival materials will be inaccessible until Monday, April 1, 2019.

University Records Centre services, including transfers and retrievals, will remain available for the duration of this project.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience as we increase our storage capacity, allowing us to grow our historical research collections.
