The Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECU) Archives acquires, preserves, and makes available records documenting the history of Emily Carr University, its various faculties, departments, and governing bodies. Additionally, to supplement the information in the University's institutional records, the ECU Archives acquires the private papers of faculty members, administrators, artists and alumni, as well as the records of independent student, alumni and employee organizations. The holdings consist of a broad range of materials including publications, textual records, course calendar, video recordings, audio recordings and photographs dating from 1925 to present.

The ECU Archives supports the research of faculty, students, alumni, scholars and the public through access and supports teaching/enhancing curriculum as appropriate.

At this time, access to the physical materials in the ECU Archives are available by appointment only. If you are interested in using the ECU Archives please contact to arrange a time.
