The Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center & Archives is the home of a comprehensive and expanding collection of resources on the Holocaust and genocide, including archival documents, books, audio-visual material, interactive and permanent exhibits, and more.
During the Fall of 2009, the Center moved into their new state-of the-arts translucent glass building. The College Archives are located in the Kurt R. Schmeller Library on the campus of Queensborough Community College. The College Archives consist of documents from the Board of Trustees minutes and bylaws, the City University of New York report which include Chancellor Reports and University Faculty Senate minutes. Also included in the Archives are the documents from the departments of the College, the history of QCC, the student newspapers and yearbooks. Numerous photos highlighting the various decades of QCC’s history are a part of this collection.
The former Senator Frank Padavan Legislative Archives are also housed at Queensborough. This collection covers the Senator’s years in Albany from 1972-2010. Primary Senate papers, correspondence, and hearings have been collected for faculty, staff, students and the community to study. Photos of the Senator as he negotiated bills such as the mental health laws, casino gambling, the Long Island HOV lanes, and “safe city, safe streets” legislation are all accessible for use.
