The mission of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center is to capture and document history by collecting the manuscripts from individuals who play a significant part in the fields of journalism, poetry, literature and criticism, dance, music, theater, film, television, and political and religious movements. We preserve the documents and make them readily available to researchers while administering all legal copyrights and restrictions.

We welcome researchers from all over the world and we present extensive exhibitions, seminars and tours for our students, parents and alumni as well as various visiting groups. We strive to be a source of education and enrichment for members of the University and local community as well as all our visitors.
