Welcome To CUNY Digital History Archive

The CUNY Digital History Archive (CDHA) is an open, digital public archive and portal that gives the CUNY community and the broader public online access to a range of materials related to the history of the City University of New York. This project also involves coordination and collaboration with college libraries and archives that contribute significant historical collections. CDHA will also accept historical materials and records held by individuals whose lives, in diverse ways, have shaped, and been shaped, by CUNY. Faculty, staff, students, archivists, librarians, retirees, and alumni have contributed to the university's democratic mission and the CUNY Digital History Archive reflects those efforts. CDHA is conducted under the auspices of the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning at the CUNY Graduate Center. We are grateful to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for providing start-up funding for this project.
