About Norwalk Campus Library

Archives Policy

Baker Library houses the Norwalk Campus Archives, including committee reports, meeting minutes, and other documents and ephemera associated with the college. Archive materials are available by appointment only with at least one week’s notice. To make an appointment, contact Kimberly Bryant-Smith at or 203-857-6895. Archive materials must be viewed in a glass-enclosed room. Users are permitted to have pencils, paper, and a laptop computer in this space. Coats, umbrellas, backpacks or other containers, permanent marking pens, and food and drink are not permitted. Photocopies for personal or educational use may be requested for a fee of $.50 per page. Requests to publish or scan archive materials must be made to the library director in writing.

Make a Research Request

The Norwalk Campus Archives accept research requests from members of the campus community or the general public who are seeking information that may be held in our collection. Please provide full details, including dates, about the information or materials you are seeking. We will contact you by email when we have determined if your request can be fulfilled. Note that the time frame for processing will depend upon the nature of your request.

Donating Materials to the Archives

Donations of materials for the archives may be accepted in accordance with the Norwalk Campus Library donation policy. Please email an itemized list of proposed donations to Kimberly Bryant-Smith at

Materials that may be accepted include:

  • photographs documenting campus life, events, and activities
  • documents and ephemera created by the college such as yearbooks, student publications, or event posters
  • official minutes or reports created by campus committees or other work units
  • publications by Norwalk Campus community members that document campus practices, procedures, or history

Materials that cannot be accepted include:

  • personal papers of Norwalk Campus students, alumni, or employees

Please note that no archives contain infinite space. Only selected materials can be chosen for preservation. The appropriate procedure for dealing with most physical materials created during the course of an employee's work on campus is set by State of Connecticut law and is handled through the state's official records retention and disposition process.
