Digitized Collections Document the History of Stony Brook University

In celebration of the Stony Brook University's 50th Anniversary, there is a new website for the University Archives. The site includes a history and timeline of the University, information about print, photographic, and multi-media collections, and links to newly digitized collections.

You can now read the digitized versions of publications created by SBU's faculty, staff and students. Collections are fully keyword-searchable and include: the campus newspapers Statesman, Stony Brook Press and Blackworld; reports from administrative departments; material created by university governance; technical reports from College of Engineering and Applied Science; and the Long Island Historical Journal. Issues of the Specula (the University's official yearbook) can be browsed beginning from 1961. A wide array of videos can also be viewed ranging from archival footage of Poetry Center events to faculty authors discussing their recent publications.

Special Collections and University Archives acquires material in all formats that document the history of the University, including faculty papers, photographs, and memorabilia. Visit for more information.
