What is Archives and Special Collections?

The Molloy University Archives collects, preserves, and provides access to resources documenting the history, growth, and achievements of Molloy. These records chronicle Molloy's story, beginning in the early 1930s when the Dominican Sisters first began to plan and save for a Catholic women's college, to the present day. Along with administrative records, publications, yearbooks, and course catalogs, the Archives has a rich photographic collection documenting campus events and activities of students, faculty, and administrators.

Special collections and personal papers are collections from organizations and individuals. These collections help inform the history of Molloy University, our Long Island community, and support Molloy's educational mission. We maintain a variety of materials in physical and digital formats, including oral histories, internet and social media archives, photographic collections, electronic records, manuscript papers, and ephemera.

Widely used collection materials have been digitized to improve access. In many cases, materials will require the assistance of the Archivist to locate.  Let us know your research interests. We are here to help!
