Faculty and Student Handbooks

Identifier: BCC-005

Scope and Contents

The majority of the collection consists of faculty and student handbooks, as well as other types of handbooks and guides intended for student use. The collection also includes a variety of pamphlets and printed material. Some of these items were created as informational resources for students (flyers, brochures, etc.), while others were intended for faculty and staff (memos, etc.). As a whole, the collection dates from 1968 to the present. The faculty handbooks in the collection range from 1970 to approximately 2004, and the student handbooks range from 1968 to the present. However, not every year within these date ranges is present in the collection. For example, there are several gaps in the student handbooks – 1988 to 1996, 1998 to 2002, 2003 to 2006, and 2006 to 2009.

Language of Materials



This collection includes faculty and student handbooks, as well as a variety of additional faculty and student materials such as pamphlets and brochures. The handbooks provide necessary information about the college and its resources, policies, and procedures. The additional materials contain both promotional and informational items. Some advertise the college to prospective students, while others provide information for current students. Together, the items in this collection highlight the types of materials that contribute to faculty and student success at Bergen Community College.


The items in this collection have been arranged in two ways – first by type of material, and then by chronological order. Each box is labeled with the type of material and the date range of the contents. Dividers have been placed between items to indicate any handbooks, etc. that are currently not included in the collection. The dividers have been labeled to show what is missing – for example, the divider between the 1988 and 1996 student handbooks has been labeled to show that any student handbooks from 1989 to 1995 are not present in the collection. This only applies to items in the collection that are part of a series, such as the handbooks. Some of the additional faculty and student materials are of a more miscellaneous nature, so there was no need to indicate missing dates. Smaller items, such as pamphlets and brochures, have been put into folders.

Processing Information

Certain components of this collection, such as the student handbooks, are being continuously acquired, in terms of both filling the gaps and obtaining each new volume as it is published. This guide will be updated as new volumes are added.
