Our Mission

 

The Monsignor William Noé Field Archives & Special Collections Center serves as the official repository for materials of enduring historical value documenting Seton Hall University and our parent organization, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark. We exist to identify, collect, and preserve pertinent and unique materials, including rare books, manuscripts, photographs, audio/video recordings, and works of art that support the Catholic educational mission of Seton Hall University, and to offer access and research aid to the community. The Center carries out its unique mission on behalf of the entire Seton Hall University community under the authority of Administrative Announcement 94.04 (February, 1994), which governs the care and disposition of University Records and by extension provides for care of non-institutional materials under our direct and continued ownership.
