Seneca Archives and Special Collections is a service of Seneca Libraries that identifies, preserves, and makes available for use Seneca's inactive records of long-term value, as well as the private donations of archival records and special collections that come from individuals and organizations closely associated with Seneca.
Our resources are open to all members of the Seneca community and outside visitors for the purposes of research, teaching, publication, and general interest.
