“We Would Like to Open Personal Archives to the Researchers”


Boğaziçi University Archives and Documentation Center has moved to its new building. The Center, which has started its operations last year in September, is rapidly becoming institutionalized with new projects. In April 2015, after the exhibition "From Boxes to Catalogues: Towards Boğaziçi Archives", focusing on the institutional memory of Robert College and Boğaziçi University, we are continuing our work with a new project aiming to catalogue, digitize and open to researchers the personal archives held at Boğaziçi University with the financial support of the Istanbul Development Agency. The center will continue its activities on its new building (Lodge No: 8 on the South Campus) opened on November 9, 2016.
