The Industrial Archives & Library was incorporated on January 1, 2015 as a non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), Private Operating Foundation (POF), located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. It utilizes several secure and environmentally-controlled facilities for the inventory, processing, and storage of archival and library materials. The Industrial Archives & Library’s staff possesses extensive experience working in the fields of public history and private-sector corporate management for a variety of institutions and organizations. Implemented plans and programs are set to both meet the institutional mission to make records available to the public and to position the Archives to meet industry best practices for collections management.
The Industrial Archives & Library maintains active memberships in both the Society of American Archivists (SAA) and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC). Staff adhere to and are guided by the Society of American Archivists’ Code of Ethics.
The Industrial Archives & Library is governed by a Board of Trustees.
