The Athens Technical College Archives is housed in the Athens Technical College Library and consists of print materials such as reports, working papers, and commercial publications about the college, slides, film, photographs, newspaper clippings, PR related materials, scrapbooks, and ephemera such as plates. Much of the commercially printed material has been cataloged in the library catalog, SIRSI; however, the photographs (approximately, 1000), slides (approximately, 3000), film (VHS, Beta, etc.; approximately 100) and newspaper/media clippings, some loose and some scrapbooked (approximately 1000), have not been cataloged yet.
Print material in this collection spans the establishment of the College in 1956 until the early 1990s. Digital materials are being collected separately. In late 2014, the Portal Manager and library partnered together to begin to address these unique materials. Currently, photographs are being scanned and added to a repository (digital library); newspaper clippings are being described and added to the repository.
Our digital repository is now active! Check it out at http://gear.athenstech.edu
