About the Archives
The Stanford University Archives is the official repository for records of Stanford University and serves as its institutional memory. The Archives collects materials in any format that document the history of Stanford, including its founders, administration, faculty, students, and alumni/ae. Our holdings include more than 30,000 linear feet of material and 20+ TB of electronic records within 2,200+ collections.

Stanford Libraries Special Collections staff received a "Dear Colleagues and Friends" email from one of our highly valued and respected staff members this past Thursday, January 25. Elizabeth Fischbach, Exhibitions Designer, has announced, "With complicated feelings, I’m writing to let you know that I’ve set my official retirement date for June 1, 2018. Engagement with a job has a life cycle, and after nearly 30 years designing and producing exhibits for Special Collections I feel it’s time to move into the next phase of life—rejuvenation and repurposing of my time, focus, and energy."
Super Bowl by the Bay, now on display in Green Library's south lobby, highlights the excitement that gripped the campus on January 20, 1985, when Stanford served as the host of Super Bowl XIX.
The University Archives is pleased to announce a new exhibit opening this week in the South Lobby/East Wing of Green Library, highlighting its vibrant collection of Stanford student publications. An online exhibit sharing these same titles and more can be accessed via exhibits.stanford.edu/stanford-pubs.
The Stanford University Archives is proud to announce an ongoing initiative to acquire, process and digitize materials documenting Stanford women, the LGBTQ community, and communities of color. Following on the heels of its Stanford Stories exhibit carried out for the University’s 125th Anniversary, the Archives seeks to expand the range of voices and materials in its collections representing Stanford’s rich history. To that extent, we are happy to share our progress thus far.
