The Institute Archives and Special Collections serves as a "memory" for MIT, collecting and preserving records that document MIT's history and the people who have been a part of that history. The collections chronicle the founding and growth of MIT and provide insight into the development and current issues of the Institute as well as MIT's impact on the world beyond the Cambridge campus. The Archives has a special interest in documenting the evolution of modern science and technology and its impact on society. Particular emphasis has been placed on the role of scientists and engineers in the formation of science policy.
