Stanford Alumni Legacy Project
Alumni: Share your student materials with the University Archives!
The Stanford Alumni Legacy Project focuses on collecting, preserving, and providing long-term access to student materials created by Stanford alumni during their time on the farm. The Archives is particularly interested in letters, email, texts, photographs, audio and video recordings, posters, websites, flyers, and records of student organizations. These collected materials are used to support teaching, learning, and research at Stanford and beyond.
We are especially interested in acquiring materials relating to Stanford women, individuals of color, activists, and members of the LGBTQIA community.
You can donate your materials to the Archives or lend them for selective scanning. The Archives will also accept digital content, which will be preserved in the Stanford Digital Repository and made available online. All donations and scans of materials will be preserved and made available for teaching, learning and research. To help guide alumni, the Archives has created a handy list of materials they typically collect. Contact the Archives at email@example.com to share materials.
You can forward any memorable email messages from your time at Stanford to firstname.lastname@example.org, and any memorable texts to (415) 952-7241.
You can also leave a brief audio recording detailing a story or memory from your time at Stanford by leaving an audio message on the University Archives' Stanford Stories line: (415) 952-7241. Please clearly state your full name, Stanford affiliation, class year, and story or memory after the tone. Note that recordings are currently capped at approximately 3 minutes. To share a longer story or memory, please contact the Archives at email@example.com. By leaving a message, you acknowledge that the Archives may share recordings and transcripts in order to support teaching, learning, and research at Stanford.
If you are ready to share your materials now, you can also fill out and email us a Deed of Gift.
