The Buildings records are part of the larger Buildings and Grounds collection and focus on the College's buildings, both extant and demolished. The vast majority of information in the collection falls between 1875 and the present, though there are a few scattered items from before 1875. The College Archives staff is continually adding new information to the files. This collection interprets the term "building" loosely, and includes information not only about the buildings themselves, but also about what occurred / occurs in the buildings, especially where student residences are concerned. Much of Smith College student life is and long has been centered in the residential houses, and so a buildings file may contain annual group photographs of house residents, student rosters, house government material, and information on house traditions, in addition to the architectural information, ownership history, and photographs of the building itself. The collection also interprets "Smith building" loosely, containing limited information on a number of privately-owned, off-campus boarding-houses.
