      The Archive's main aim is to build a record of the institutional history of the College reflecting its unique history. Records of the executive, administrative and academic College bodies, College offices, College Officers and individuals employed by the College are all held in the Archive. The Archive also aims to build a record of the lives and careers of individuals and groups associated with Girton College from its foundation to the present day. As a result the Archive includes rich and varied collections of personal papers. In addition the Archive also collects records associated with the history of women's higher education and women's history generally.
