Administrative history

The TWU Archives was informally established in 1982, on the strength of grant funding acquired by Library Director David Twiest, who began to accummulate school records, as well as the archival records of Robert N. Thompson; in 1982-1983 he hired a contract archivist to begin to manage these materials.

For some years, very little work was accomplished, owing to a lack of funding.
In 1988, Ted Goshulak accepted the position of reference librarian; his responsibilities included general oversight of the archives department, which was by now established as part of the library.
In 1994 Ms Stopforth was hired to work on a part-time basis as reference librarian and archivist. Between 1995 and 2014, Stopforth successfully applied for over $47,000 in provincial and federal grant funding, which was applied to salaries, shelving, supplies, and computer hardware and software. Student assistants were hired with funding from the Work Studies Program, a provincial program that was cut ca. 2002. Stopforth resigned from this position in 2019. In February 2019, Ms. Krause succeeded as University Archivist and Assistant Librarian.

Custodial history

  • Syllabi for courses offered at the University were traditionally made available to students in hardcopy in the Library's reference section for the current year plus one previous year. Each year, typically sometime during the summer months, as new syllabi were added, those representing the oldest year were transferred to the Archives by library staff.
  • As of Spring 2006, syllabi were no longer printed by library staff, as they were more readily available online, and student in-library requests declined precipitously. No further accruals are anticipated.

Scope and content
