Functions

The Archives and Manuscripts Collection Development Policy Statement of 1985 declared the departments responsibility that "when an institution acquires unique sources through gift or purchase, it has a moral, professional, and usually contractual obligation to its donors and to society to share those resources....In preserving the legacy of such men and women, the Lee Library functions as a trustee for the creator, the donor, all potential users, and, indeed, for American society." "Meeting the instructional and research needs of the University" was the paramount but not the sole concern of the department. The Archive and Manuscript programs in 1985 were: The Brigham Young University Archives; Archives of Utah and the American West; The Archives of the Mormon Experience; The Arts and Communications Archives; Motion Picture Film and Videotape Archives; Wells Freedom Archives; The Literary Archives; The Photoarchives; The Archives of Recorded Sound; Eurpoean Manuscripts; Ancient and Medieval Manuscripts; The Mesoamerican Archives; and The U.S. Political Archives.
