The University Archives of the American University in Cairo documents the university’s history, mission, and activities. The Archives collects, preserves, and provides access to materials with long-term, historical value created by AUC units like administrative and service offices, academic and research departments, and student organizations. Holdings include collections of records, published items, photographs, audio-visual media, and faculty papers.
Materials in the University Archives are preserved for future generations in archival-quality containers and stored in a secure, climate-controlled environment. Collections are organized to facilitate use and access, and described to reflect the collection’s contents, original purpose, and creator. The collection descriptions, finding aids, are included in the AUC Libraries’ catalog.
