The Archives & Special Collections Department of SUNY Buffalo State, established in 1975, houses a growing vibrant collection of primary and secondary source materials available to faculty, students, and the public. Our collections include various college publications, scrapbooks, speeches, memorabilia, photographs, college annual reports, budgets, and statistics starting in 1860 and stretching to the present. In addition, we hold scores of unique collections of local importance, regional interest, and national significance.

We are constantly adding new collections to the Digital Commons as part of our digital initiative. For a full listing of our collection holdings, please visit the Archives & Special Collections webpage.
