Why was this case empty?
On October 9, Dr. Colleen Hanycz will be inaugurated as La Salle’s 29th President. After this historic event, Archives staff will collect materials created for the inauguration, such as programs, invitations, and promotional materials. Some of these will go on display in this case, and the others will be added to the collections of the University Archives.
The documents, photos, and digital files that the La Salle community creates today are the archival collections of the future. As archivists and archives staff, we decide which materials should be added to the University Archives, acquire those materials, preserve them, organize them, and make them available to researchers.
The work of preserving and sharing La Salle’s history is never finished. This work is ours—and yours.
