The Msgr. William Noé Field Archives & Special Collections Center located on the first floor of the University Libraries at Seton Hall University serves as the central repository for informational records created by, for and about the institution proper. The Center exists to identify, collect and preserve records of enduring value not only to Seton Hall University, but also the Archdiocese of Newark and/or Catholic New Jersey community which delivers a useful research service for its constituency and the public at large. The Center carries out its unique mission under the authority of Administrative Announcement 94.04 (February, 1994) which governs the care and disposition of University Records. Through its professional and service-related activities, the Center aims to achieve the ultimate goal of advancing the educational and research mission of Seton Hall University and promote inquiry regarding those who have built and sustained the institution from its founding to the present day.
