About Vault 217

The door to Room C-217, Special Collections & Archives

The actual Vault 217.

Vault 217 is a reference to a room in the Special Collections & Archives department in George Mason University Libraries. It serves as a storage location for some of our collection materials. The symbolism of the vault describes the mission of this blog: to open up the vault and expose our readers to some of the treasures in our collections.

This blog was created to talk about:

  • new and exciting acquisitions in SC&A
  • events in SC&A, including exhibits and SC&A-hosted programs
  • information and/or publications related to SC&A collections
  • the SC&A staff and some of the exciting things they do
