Description: The Emily Carr University Archives acquires, preserves and makes available records documenting the history of Emily Carr University of Art and Design, it's various faculties, departments and governing bodies. Additionally, to supplement the information in the University's corporate records, the ECU Archives acquires the private papers of faculty members, administrators and alumni; as well as the records of independent student, alumni and employee organizations. The holdings consist of a broad range of materials including publications, textual records, course calendars, video recordings, audio recordings and photographs dating from 1925 to present. For the most part, these records are not digitized - here you can find descriptions of those records, known as finding aids.

Description: Emily Carr is very proud of a series of donations made to the University by Dr. Yosef Wosk containing works by Cézanne, Rembrandt , Renoir, Riopelle, Cocteau, Chagal, Picasso, Manet, Miro, Warhol, Goya, Rauschenberg and many other artists. It is Dr. Wosk's hope that others will be moved to contribute works that will add both depth and instructional value to the collection. "This teaching collection will enable students to engage a series of original works, inspired by some of the best printmakers working over a period of almost five hundred years," said Dr. Wosk. In making this donation, Dr. Wosk noted that Emily Carr "has become a symbol of the future of art development, both within our province and beyond our borders. It is a home, a hearth to many: a sanctuary where creativity reigns."
