IMSA Archives Access Policy


     The Archives of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy follow accepted archival practices for organization and access. Materials are those generated at IMSA and by members of the IMSA community. Many items in the collection are unique, and increase in value as time passes. The goal of the Achives is to interpret the life of the institution, its programs, and its staff and students, and educate the IMSA community and the public about the history of the Academy.

     Users of material are expected to credit the IMSA Archives in their works and in reproduction of materials from the Archives. A copy of such work will be deposited in the Archives.

     The IMSA Archives is housed in the IRC. Access is by appointment. Materials are to be used in the IRC. Access to some materials, such as nonpublic records of current staff, is restricted.

     Materials sought are those generated by members of the IMSA community. All accession decisions are made by staff based on the research value of the collection, relation to overall holdings, its condition, and resources required to process, store, access and interpret the collection.
