North Jersey Heritage Center Open House
Teaneck, NJ (September 13, 2006) — In conjunction with New Jersey Archives Week and Family Weekend, Fairleigh Dickinson University is previewing the new North Jersey Heritage Center, which will house University archives and other collections. The public is invited to an open house on Sunday, October 8 from 2-4 p.m. at the new Heritage Center, located at 10 Woodridge Avenue, Hackensack.
The Center will house the University Library’s New Jersey Collection, which has been in storage for a decade. This important collection was developed and had been housed at the University’s former campus in Rutherford. A new facility on the Hackensack side of the Metropolitan Campus is now available for this collection as well as University archives, faculty archives, and other appropriate collections.
The archives of the International Association of University Presidents, founded by Peter Sammartino, will also be housed at the Center. Currently, FDU President J. Michael Adams is a member of the Executive Committee of the International Association of University Presidents, which he also serves as an IAUP representative to the United Nations and as Chair of the North American Council. In addition, Dr. Adams is a National Council member of the United Nations Association of the United States of America.
Light refreshments will be provided and there will be a discussion on the history and development of the Heritage Center. To attend this free open house, registration is required. To register or for directions, call Suzanne at (201) 692-2278.
