The Stories They Tell 4


In 2015, archives across the United States are sharing examples from their collections that specifically give voice to people who have a unique, surprising or compelling story to tell. RIT Archive Collections, encompassing the RIT Archives, The University Art Collection and the RIT/NTID Deaf Studies Archive, exists to document the history of the university but what is RIT’s history if not the stories of all the individuals who have worked and studied here? This exhibit taps into the collections to display records that reveal this human side of RIT’s history. We hope you enjoy the diversity of voices.

This Fall semester, a group of six students created unique exhibits on the first floor of The Wallace Library using materials from archival collections they chose to work with. Visit us and take a look at the creative work these students have done to share the story from a collection of documents and objects, or have a look at the online version of the exhibit here:
