University Archives

Joan & Donald E. Axinn Library, Room 032

The Hofstra University Archives, which serves as the repository for the historical records of Hofstra University, is located on the lower floor of the Joan & Donald E. Axinn Library. Its primary purpose is to document the history of the University and to provide such documentation to administrators, alumni, faculty, staff, students, and other members of the University community. The Archives also assists scholars and other legitimate researchers who seek to evaluate the impact of the University and its activities on the history of American social, cultural, and intellectual development.

Special Collections is currently open by appointment only. Non-Hofstra visitors must receive prior approval.
