College Archives: Home
Archival materials available for use at the Richard R. Dry Memorial Library
Erie Community College president James E. Shenton began the College Archives in 1970 as a volunteer project for the college's retirees. Today, the Archives are home to primary source materials about the history of the college. Here, you can find official records and documents, publications, photographs, artifacts, plans, and memorabilia.
Archives materials are non-circulating and are available for use in the library by appointment.
