The Ithaca College Archives houses a number of precious, carefully curated physical and digital assets documenting the ongoing history of Ithaca College. In addition, our archives house Special Collections, including the famed Rod Serling Archives. The Archives closed completely in Fall 2021 following the retirement of the College Archivist and given the need for library staff to review and secure the collection.
