Kwantlen Polytechnic University Archives collects and preserves archival materials relating to the history and activities of the University. The Archives arranges and describes these materials according to archival principles and, where possible*, makes them accessible to researchers. It provides appropriate conditions for the storage, protection and preservation of archival material. Material acquired by the Archives becomes the permanent property of the Archives, until such time as it is no longer relevant to the Archives mandate and Library Procedures (Archives)
The Archives collects records for the Institution only. Related organizations such as the following retain their own records and should be contacted directly: Kwantlen Faculty Association (KFA); BC Government Employees' Union (BCGEU); and Kwantlen Student Association (KSA). and Douglas College Archives (pre-1981; Kwantlen split from Douglas on 1 April 1981).
