Archives & Special Collections

Make a Donation

The Archives & Special Collections at the College of Staten Island grows mostly through the donations of collection material and financial support from individuals. We collect books, manuscripts, photographs, and ephemera that document the history of the College of Staten Island, Richmond College, and Staten Island Community College. We also are interested in books, manuscripts, photographs and ephemera useful for historical research on post-1945 Staten Island. Particular focuses are political life, public education, economic development, and health and environmental issues. If you have material that may be appropriate for the collection, or to make financial contributions to fund special projects, collection development, equipment, and supplies, please contact James A. Kaser, Ph.D., Professor and Archivist, who may be reached by e-mail (, or telephone (718.982.4129). Contributions can be made through the College of Staten Island Foundation.
