ARCHES = Academic Repository for Cultural Heritage, Education, and Scholarship.
The materials in ARCHES are wide ranging! You can find archival materials like letters, diaries, and scrapbooks; historical information produced at Union like oral histories; educational and research work like the Mohawk Watershed Symposium; and digital scholarship work produced by students in partnership with the library. These materials are one-of-a-kind items that provide the basis for many research and scholarship projects.
