About our blog
Records are a product of the time and circumstances in which they were created, and sometimes the stories around their creation get lost in the shuffle.
At the SFU Archives, we process university records and records from private donors. As we process records, we make discoveries that can provide historical context, and we are eager to share our findings with you.
Each month of SFU’s 50th anniversary year, beginning in June 2015, we will feature and discuss in our blog the significance of newly digitized records. This Day in SFU History will explain how you can access the records from SFU AtoM, the Web portal to our digital repository.
We hope to demystify archives and to open your eyes to new possibilities for teaching, research, discovery, and engagement.
Please check back often!
