Tandon student Joel Ureña's ('20) project, The Polywog Collection, was featured in the Sept/Oct 2020 issue of Archival Outlook magazine. We look forward to returning to campus in Fall 2021 and welcoming more students into our archives. We can't wait to see what you discover & create!

The mission of the Poly Archives is to collect, preserve, and provide access to the records of the former Polytechnic Institute (1854-2014). The archives document the history of the former iterations of the school including: the Brooklyn Collegiate and Polytechnic Institute, Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, Polytechnic Institute of New York, Polytechnic University, and Polytechnic Institute of New York University.
The Poly Archives’ rare books and special collections provide context to the archival material by providing documentation of the history of science and technology, particularly in Brooklyn, and the development of MetroTech Center.
