MacEwan University Archives
The MacEwan University Archives serves as the university's official memory and provides access to records of enduring value related to the origins, programs, and mandate of the university and its predecessors for use by MacEwan staff and external researchers. It began in 2013 as a unit within the Library when Valla McLean, Humanities Librarian, was appointed University Archivist. In 2014, space for holdings and a reading room was designated in room 7-305 at City Centre Campus and an Archives Technician joined the staff. The grand opening for the Archives was held in June 2017. In 2019, the Archives became an institutional member of the Archives Society of Alberta.
