Services & Policies


While the Rhodes College Archives and Special Collections exists in order to preserve the memory, traditions, and individuals that have contributed to the unique identity of Rhodes College, our collections would serve no purpose if interested people--from college faculty, staff, and students to outside researchers--could not access and easily use all we have to offer. Peruse the content of this section to read how the Archives and its staff can assist you in your research and how to properly use archival materials.
