Latin American Indigenous Languages: Archives

What are Archives?

Academic archives collect, preserve, and provide access to primarily unique, unpublished primary source materials, in order to preserve institutional and cultural memory.  These materials may include personal papers, organizational records, photographs, moving images, sound recordings, ephemera, or other one-of-a-kind items.  The collections of academic archives usually document the history of the university or college, as well as other specialty collecting areas defined by the archive.
