Welcome to the library guide to Triton College's Archives!
Over one year now, I have been working dilligently with Triton's Marketing Department in preparation for Triton's upcoming 50th Anniversary. As a graduate of Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science, I most recently audited Introduction to Archival Principles, Practices and Services taught by Dr. Cecilia Salvatore. My background in Special Collections began professionally at the Butler Children's Literature Center as the Center's Graduate Assistant and later at the Newberry Library as the library's first, Children's Literature Intern. As an alumna of Triton College and I look forward to sharing the history of our unique community college with you.
If I can assist you with your research needs, please do not hesitate to contact me directly:

What Are Archives?

Archives vs Libraries
"To answer the question, you first have to know the difference between an archives and a library (if getting a room full of archivists riled up is not enough and you want to actually drive them into an old fashioned-lather, say that archives are the same as libraries)... Archives, by their very nature, contain unique items. As such, one of an archivist's key duties is to safeguard and preserve them. That means mitigating the disaster caused by great grubby unwashed pawing through lovely, pristine records." -- Via the Hairpin, "Ask and Archivist" May 7, 2012
