Collection Descriptions

The Georgia Tech Archives and Records Management Department holds collections of papers, records, photographs, architectural collections, artifacts, and rare books. These materials primarily document the history of Georgia Tech and the activities of its faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Other collecting areas include a large science fiction collection and the records of textile mills in the Southeast.

The Archives also houses the Georgia Tech Design Archives (GTDA). GTDA collects, preserves, and provides access to materials related to architectural design in the Southeast. The Archives acquisition of the Heffernan Design Archives (HDA) Collection serves as the foundation for GTDA, which will expand to include architectural materials originating outside of Georgia Tech proper, specifically focusing on the design and development of the modern South.
