Administrative History

The Alumni Association began publishing the Alumni Directory in 1980 as a way to help keep graduates of the University at Albany connected. Being included in the book was a voluntary. Up until 2006 invovlement in the book was pretty broad, though it is obvious that for the 2011 edition there was a drop in numbers of alumni offering their invovlement. It has since been replaced by social media sites such as Facebook and Linkedin, of which the Alumni associaiotn has its own personal pages for. There are also some other tools such as a map of the numbers of Albany graduates from various counties around the country.

Scope and Contents

The colections consists of the Alumni directory, published by the Alumni Association from 1980 to 2011. The basic information held within these includes lists of alumni as well as their home addresses, contact information, graduation year, and their current careers.
