The mission of the Sister Mary Carmel McGarigle University Archives at Misericordia University is to collect, arrange, preserve, and make accessible the permanent records of the University, as well as rare and unique collections in all formats that support the University's administration, teaching, research, and service endeavors. The Archives provides reference and outreach services to make the collections available in support of research, teaching, and lifelong learning.
The Misericordia University Archives also houses The Center for Nursing History of Northeastern Pennsylvania special collection. The collection was started to collect and provide access to nursing documentation, personal histories, and memorabilia that document the experience of nurses and the history of the nursing profession in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
